From the technical point of view, the way to the North looks more crowded with strong barriers, which means Bitcoin bulls may have a hard time engineering a recovery momentum. On the other hand, there is a strong support area around the recent low, which is likely to slow down the sell-off. There are hardly any significant support levels below.
