Edul Patel, CEO and co-founder of Mudrex, said, “The price of bitcoin remained below the $17,000 mark over the weekend. In the past few days, bitcoin has faced resistance on both sides, indicating a lack of consensus among market participants. If bitcoin can close above the $16,900 level, it may resume its previous upward trend. Meanwhile, ethereum has been relatively stagnant over the weekend, lacking the momentum for a significant price shift. It is currently trading in a narrow range without any clear bullish or bearish signals. If the price moves above the support level of $1,230, it could potentially see an upward trend.”
