Bitcoin market update

The largest cryptocurrency explored the levels close to $9,000 following the butchering of $10,500 and $10,000 key support levels. The expected support at $9,500 did little to stop the losses as the price dipped further towards $9,000.

At the moment, BTC/USD is trading at $9,758 after adding 3.57% to the value ton Wednesday afternoon (GMT) session. The target for the buyers in the short-term is to push Bitcoin above $10,000. A move that is meant to remove Bitcoin from the bear range and relaunch in a bullish path heading towards $11,000.
