Slow bleed to $8,200 possible?

On Friday, Bitcoin attempted to break the $9,000 price level, but was swiftly rejected and brought back to lower levels below $8,600, where it remained throughout the entire weekend.

Cointelegraph contributor Michaël van de Poppe remains positive about the return of overall bullish sentiment, but would like to “see a tick up to like $8,800 to confirm a slight trend reversal (like scenario),” adding:

“If not, this slow bleed could accelerate to $8,200 as the next level. Sentiment; fear. Obviously.”

Ether (ETH), meanwhile, is currently sitting close to $183 per coin. The number one altcoin continues to trade in perfect sync with BTC, showing upward price behavior leading to its current trading position, up .73% on the day.
