Market overview

BTC displayed fluctuations, descending to a low of $68,842, which is close to the initial support level of $68,500. BTC’s chances of directly surging past $73,777 dropped. It's highly possible that the primary uptrend will only kick off after a successful retracement. 

During this period, the resilience of the $66,000 and $68,000 marks needs continued monitoring. The exchange rate of ETH to BTC has bounced back to 0.054, indicating a 22.7% recovery from the low point and effectively breaking past the downtrend. Resistance is expected near the 0.07 mark. If BTC sustains at $70,000, ETH could potentially hit $4,900.
