Bitcoin’s recovery over the last week has been propelled forward by different things. Recent was the news that the United States is now in recession, following two years of negative GDP growth.

Bitcoin has seen substantial support in the past at this level, and it continues to receive increasing support. However, the lack of buying pressure does not affect the price. Investors rush to make profits after the recovery and traders may become overwhelmed by the selling pressure, which could cause them to focus on shorting the market instead.
