Bitcoin, Solana leads winners in top 10

Bitcoin was the day’s biggest gainer in the top 10 cryptocurrencies, rising 1.86% in the 24 hours leading up to 4:30 p.m. in Hong Kong, to US$26,208, regaining the US$26,000 support level for the first time since Monday. Despite the bullish momentum, market analysts are warning of another potential drop to US$25,000.

“Bitcoin has been wandering on a steady sideways move since the beginning of September. The lack of liquidity in the market leaves it with no volatility,” Aziz Kenjaev, financial analyst and director of business development at cross-chain liquidity protocol Entangle, told Forkast.

“In the current scenario, Bitcoin must close [the week] above US$26,000 to continue bullish, and closing below US$25,100 might signal another drop, towards US$23,750,” added Kenjaev, referencing the below chart.
