Crypto News 8/11: General bearish sentiment is driving Bitcoin with EOS, Dogecoin, Shiba Inu, Solana, Cere Network above $ 66,000
Today’s Bitcoin price action was caused by a sharp drop in trader sentiment. With Bitcoin hovering in the $ 63,000- $ 58,000 range without strong purchases, traders are losing their optimism, according to Santiment.
While the data provided may sound contradicting itself, there is actually an inverse correlation between Bitcoin price and general trader sentiment. The strong bearish sentiment will usually trigger a strong rally shortly thereafter.
???? As traders observed #Bitcoin staying in the low of $ 60,000 for the past 10 days, optimism seems to be changing as many grow impatient with the stagnation. A shift towards negative sentiment implies a greater chance at $ BTC Price increases. https://t.co/KOPQvZEwk9 pic.twitter.com/a9VqRynA67

Historically, prices in the cryptocurrency market have often moved in the opposite direction of the expectations of the masses. While rallies can be driven by the retailer, in the event of corrections or accumulations, it is often whales that change the direction of the market.
In the past, on-chain data has shown that the share of whales in the crypto market is growing exponentially, which is generally viewed as a positive as whales are more likely to boost the market than crash.
Currently, sentiment among Bitcoin traders has hit a September low just before the price rebounded above the $ 65,000 region. At the moment, Bitcoin’s trading volume doesn’t seem to be breaking records, which shows that retailers are currently not interested in selling or buying BTC.
Bitcoin miners’ income rose sharply.
Bitcoin miners say the amount of BTC mined is halving every four years. Currently, the average miner can mine between 900 and 1,000 BTC per day.
Despite the sharp drop in BTC mined, miners’ earnings have increased 550% since halving in 2020, reaching an ATH of over $ 62 million a day.

Technical SOL analysis.
After SOL broke the previous high of USD 215.8 at the end of October, SOL recorded the next upward wave in November: the price levels of USD 239.5 and USD 254.1 were conquered. SOL is currently watching the 200% Fibonacci expansion, however several indicators suggest that a short-term correction has occurred.

The RSI has made lower highs in the overbought zone, the Awesome Oscillator has made a bearish double high, and the MACD has seen an unfavorable crossover. Corrections tend to be higher as sellers put more downward pressure on them. SOL trades below the 20 SMA (red), a sign that the bears are taking control.
Another 2% -3% decline will cause SOL to hit the 123.6% Fibonacci level, which is its first line of defense. If the SOL reverses course from this support area, the higher lows will be maintained in its overall trend.
Traders looking to profit from the SOL rally can go long in the above support areas, although the stop loss must be held at USD 225 as the SOL closes below the 50 SMA (yellow).
