Bitcoin price retreat for the second consecutive trading session but managed to rebound from daily lows amid an improvement in equities markets. Bitcoin price mirrors the move in stock markets the last weeks and the price of bitcoin moves on the risk-on – risk-off sentiment. Bitcoin price rejected at the 50-day moving average several times the last days, and bears might attempt a break below the 9,000 mark.
