BTCUSD – Daily Chart

At the time of writing, BTC/USD is hovering around the $36,679 level after touching the daily high of $37,494.

Should in case the coin drops more, then it could rely on the long-term support levels at $28,000, $23,000, and $18,000 as the Relative Strength Index (14) moves above 35-level.
