The bears continued their stranglehold over Bitcoin as the price descended past the $6,000 price level before settling to $6,091.08 as of 10:45 a.m. ET. The price has fallen almost 5% in the last 24 hours and 14% within the last seven days.

The leading digital currency has fallen as of late, particularly when news broke that the US Securities and Exchange Commission is postponing their decision on a bitcoin ETF filed by investment firm VanEck and blockchain technology company SolidX.

Bitcoin has fallen over 15% after breaking through the $8,000 price mark near the end of July–a critical price level seen by bulls as one that would eventually set the stage for a rally. Fast forward over a month later to day, and a tangible rally has yet to materialize.
