Crypto in correction, but Bitcoin bounces from $40,000

Digital assets are seeing a decline today.
In addition to Bitcoin itself, which fell from around $44,000 to test the $40,000 level, the decline is also extending to the altcoin market.
Today we are seeing weaker sentiment on the indices.
Both European benchmarks and Wall Street contracts are slightly lower.
US dollar futures, USDIDX are up 0.12%.
It appears that volatility in the cryptocurrency market could increase again this evening when the Fed decides on interest rates (8 p.m.).

However, the declines occurred soon after Bitcoin closed its eighth consecutive weekly candle higher and appear to be due to pressure to make gains, following a notable rally.
The demand came to a head rather quickly and brought the price of Bitcoin above $42,000.
According to Coinglass data, the dynamic decline liquidated approximately $270 million in long positions and $1.2 billion in open positions in the BTC options market, which is currently worth approximately $17.9 billion.
The largest cryptocurrency fell about 4% this week, although at its peak it was close to 8%.
Looking at the MACD, such a dynamic correction can only be comparable to the declines in early September, when Bitcoin fell from $27,500 to around $24,000.
If the upside structure is preserved, a further scenario appears to be a consolidation around $40,000.
Bitcoin Chart (H1, H4) The bulls managed to stop the decline in Bitcoin price at the SMA100 support level (black line), at $40,000.
Historically this year, the SMA100 average has been a major determinant of momentum, and a bullish reaction around it looks positive at least in the short term.
Furthermore, it took place at the psychologically significant level of $40,000.

Investing in cryptocurrency CFDs involves significant risks.
The cryptocurrency market is known for its high volatility, which can cause sudden and unpredictable price movements.
The use of leverage can amplify both profits and losses, making it crucial to have a solid risk management strategy and employ control measures, such as the use of stop losses.

On the one hand, this meant that the vast majority of investors took profits and, on the other hand, there was an influx of demand that absorbed supply for many weeks.
Bitcoin 'on-chain' Source: Glassnode On-chain data shows that investors are depositing their Bitcoin into cryptocurrency exchanges at a record rate.
Currently, the levels are the lowest since July 2020.
This means that investors are not particularly keen to sell their Bitcoin, despite such a huge rally.
Limited supply generally favors higher prices.
