According to Jeffrey Halley of Oanda, the largest cryptocurrency is trading inside the defined range. Of course, which has a bottom limit of $36,500. If Bitcoin falls below that level, it will almost certainly lose a lot of money. According to Halley, if Bitcoin rises above the upper barrier of $47,500, a new record high could be within reach.
