Bitcoin (BTC) Testing $44K Support, Ethereum (ETH) Below $1400, On-Chain Metrics Improve

The overall cryptocurrency market continues to stay under pressure and has lost $400 billion over the last week slipping below $1.4 trillion. Slipping another 6% today, Bitcoin (BTC) is down 20% on the weekly charts and testing up crucial support levels at $44K.
At press time, BTC is trading at $44,692 with a market cap of $833 billion. Popular bitcoin analyst and trader Josh Rager notes that if the BTC price slips below $44K, its next support is at $40K.

Keeping an eye on the $44ks – tested once but a break below there likely sends price back down to $40k
And if price makes way to $40k – you know it’s going to wick in the mid to upper $30ks
Could bounce here – but going to take it level by level/day by day

However, CryptoQuant CEO Ki-Young Ju has stated that institutional players are likely to defend the $44K as a lot of players have entered at this stage. Despite Bitcoin remaining under pressure, the on-chain data for the world’s largest cryptocurrency continues to improve.
On Saturday, CoinGape reported that over 13K Bitcoins moved out of Coinbase to cold storage with Bitcoin liquidity further reducing.
