At the time of this writing, the BTC price is hovering just under $9,450, down 1.5% on the daily. If the support area around $9,350 holds and BTC retraces above the 0.5-0.618 Fibonacci levels, odds are reasonably high that the price could make another attempt at breaking out.

More on these and other big updates from the day in BeInCrypto’s cryptocurrency news roundup for May 20, 2020.
