The overall mood of this cryptocurrency ecosystem is muted on June 15 with the majority of altcoins trading level while BTC (BTC) bulls look for a daily close above $41,000 as a sign that the market may be shifting in favour of bulls.
Data from TradingView shows that over the past couple of hours BTC cost shrunk to $41,330 but the breakout has been quickly fulfilled by advertising at overhead resistance levels.
Another gauge of investor sentiment as emphasized by Rekt Capital is the 200 exponential moving average (EMA), which BTC tried to surpass on Tuesday but has been firmly rejected.

BTC’s rejection in the 200 EMA was followed with a rapid sell-off to $39,500, demonstrating that a possible move lower is not from the question.
