  • Bitcoin targets $10,000 in the short-term after recovery from $9,000.

The crypto bulls are waking up once again after the battering they received from the bears yesterday. The market capitalization shrunk extensively from $291 on Monday to $260 on Tuesday. As cryptos across the board reverse the trend that has prevailed in the last couple of days, the market cap is also growing gradually.

Bitcoin market update

The largest cryptocurrency explored the levels close to $9,000 following the butchering of $10,500 and $10,000 key support levels. The expected support at $9,500 did little to stop the losses as the price dipped further towards $9,000.

At the moment, BTC/USD is trading at $9,758 after adding 3.57% to the value ton Wednesday afternoon (GMT) session. The target for the buyers in the short-term is to push Bitcoin above $10,000. A move that is meant to remove Bitcoin from the bear range and relaunch in a bullish path heading towards $11,000.
