Unusual bouts of volatility were seen over the weekend that drowned Bitcoin (BTC/USD) as low as 8907.51 in the overnight trades. Although the bulls were quick to stage a solid comeback, as the No. 1 coin briefly regained the 9100 barrier in early Asia this Monday.

Despite the latest leg higher, the price failed to resist above the latter, as sellers returned amid a generalized weak sentiment across the crypto space. At the press time, the crypto asset posts small gains to trade around 9080.

The 200-HMA capped the overnight rally near 9115, as the price slips back below the 100-HMA at 9100.
