BTC/USD massive drop slipped below the 12 moving average exponentials (EMA) 15-minutes. The price plunged further down below $5,400 before forming a weekly low at $5,374.11 (on Coinbase).

In the short-term, BTC/USD has a bullish outlook. In fact, the MACD in the same 15-minutes range is moving sideways in the positive region to show that the bulls have more influence.
