Rundown Of BTC Price In June
BTC looked promising at the dawning of June, hitting a selling price of over $32,000, being its all-week high.

This went on for days until the end of the first week of June. However, before the end of the period, the price finally rose to the coveted $30,000. The occurrence created a green bar that broke past the longest bar of the nine successive weekly bearish candles.
