Over the last 24 hours, bitcoin's total market cap has fallen from $152 billion to $141 billion – an $11 billion decrease.

Early this morning (CEST), the bitcoin price fell by several hundred dollars. From around $8,500, the price of the world’s biggest cryptocurrency dropped to $7,732 in just one hour, according to numbers from Bitstamp.

That is a $768 decrease, which is over nine percent.

The price then bounced up a bit and bitcoin is currently trading at around $7,900.

Might be wise to wait

During Monday, Trijo News technical analyst Dennis Sahlström wrote that it might be wise to wait to take a position on the market until you see which direction a possible outbreak will come.

“Two well-known indicators show that a decline can come within a week. Relative Strenght Index (RSI) and MACD both show that a turnaround has begun. The volume also shows that buyers have lost momentum”, Dennis Sahlström wrote yesterday.
