Total market capitalization
After a failure near USD 50,000, bitcoin price corrected lower. BTC declined below the USD 49,500 support level. There was a move below the USD 49,200 level. The next major support is near the USD 48,500 level, below which the price could test USD 47,500. Any more losses may perhaps lead the price towards the USD 46,500 level.

On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the USD 4,400 level. If there is a close above USD 4,400, the price could rise towards the USD 4,550 level.
