    Looking at the 2-hours chart, bitcoin even settled below the $9,800 level and the 50 simple moving average (2-hours, purple). It even traded below the key $9,720 support area to enter a bearish zone.

    Moreover, the price broke the $9,600 support and a declining channel on the 2-hours chart. Finally, the price spiked below the $9,500 level and traded as low as $9,467. At the moment, the price is currently consolidating losses above the $9,460 level.
