Over the past week, we have seen the price of Bitcoin run over $7,400 but sharply retrace under seven thousand dollars. Above all, we saw the MACD histogram, which is one of the Bitcoins price indicators show bullish signs for the first time since the beginning of 2018. In fact, the MACD histogram shows a level below zero, which indicates a bull market for the first time since January 2018! So what happened yesterday, that caused this strong Bearish reversal? After all, many Bitcoin bulls were getting excited for a BTC run over ten thousand dollars, or at least above the $8,500 July 2018 high.

As a result, this may have added confidence in the BTC market, making the price increase. However, in our opinion, we feel that the announcement they are not interested scared off some mainstream investors and they took their positions off the table, causing the five percent drop today. Furthermore, Goldman Sachs would not confirm their statement according to the official CNBC website.
Recently, CNBC published an article about Goldman Sachs that said they are still considering offering Bitcoin. More specifically, according to CNBC, Goldman Sachs goes on record to say “In response to client interest in various digital products, we are exploring how best to serve them in the space. At this point, we have not reached a conclusion on the scope of our digital asset offering,” Goldman Sachs said in a statement.
Shortly after that, Brian Kelly, who is the founder and the CEO of crypto hedge fund BKCM made a statement. According to the official CNBC website, Brian Kelly says “They were not a part of the ecosystem yet, but to the extent that they represent the institutional herd, this is a negative,”
