Thursday marked the first time that bitcoin had traded below $8,000 since April 18, shortly after the market began a rally that ultimately carried bitcoin to $9,990 — but failed to push it past the psychologically-important $10,000 threshold.

Notably, the pullback came during the high-profile “Blockchain Week,” which Wall Street strategy firm Fundstrat had predicted would inject a bullish sentiment in the market.
