FxPro's team of analysts say:
"It remains to be seen whether the current correction will escalate into a longer decline amid an overflow of interest in the more traditional stock and gold markets. If the greed and fear index is still in the greed area, then the RSI for BTC/USD has shown a sharp decline."
