BEARISH drop BitCoin below $7,000 after Korean exchange Coinrail hack.

The bitcoin market has come alive in the last 36 hours, with the bears gaining the upper hand and now aiming for fresh 2018 lows below $6,000.

The cryptocurrency dropped nearly 10 percent on Sunday, hitting a two-month low of $6,619 on Bitfinex, having spent the last two weeks trading in the narrow range of $7,000–$7,800.

Across the media, the price drop has been put down to a hack on South Korean exchange Coinrail, revealed Sunday, and renewed concerns regarding security at cryptocurrency exchanges.

However, a big move was expected anyway – as an extended period of consolidation or low volatility is often followed by a sharp move on either side – and prices started falling Saturday, so the theft of ERC-20 tokens at a minor exchange seems an unlikely cause.

Either way, the technical studies now spell trouble for bitcoin. The convincing move below $7,000 marks a downside break of the four-month-long narrowing price range and has opened the doors for a drop below $6,000 (Feb. 6 low).
