·2 min read

The bitcoin dominance rate (BTCD) has fallen below numerous long-term support levels, reaching its lowest value since 2018.

The BTCD rate is expected to continue moving downwards to eventually reach the closest support level at 39.5%.

Long-term BTCD decrease

BTCD has been moving downwards since it reached a high of 73.63% in December 2020. Since then, it has decreased by a full 30%.

The rate of decrease really accelerated once a breakdown from the 53% area occurred. Previously, this level had been acting as support since August 2018.

Currently, BTCD is at the 0.786 Fib retracement support level, found at 43.51%. The next support below it is a horizontal level found at 39.5%. This area not been reached since early 2018.

Technical indicators in the weekly time frame are still bearish. The MACD is negative, the RSI has fallen below the 30-line and the Stochastic oscillator has made a bearish cross.

Therefore, the long-term trend is still considered bearish.
