What Happened: Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency by market cap, meandered in the $61,000 zone, after witnessing a sharp correction from $63,000 last Friday. The apex crypto finished last week with losses of more than 4%.

The sideways movement was reflected in the speculative interest for the coin, as Open Interest (OI) in Bitcoin futures saw a tepid 0.32% increase in the 24-hour period.

About $56 million in positions was wiped out in the last 24 hours, with nearly equal amounts of longs and shorts liquidated.

Ethereum and king of memecoins, Dogecoin, had a more difficult time, shedding 6% and 12% over the week.

The Cryptocurrency Fear & Greed Index flashed "Greed" ahead of a new trading week, suggesting that investor sentiment remained unchanged from the last week.

Analyst Notes: Noted cryptocurrency analyst and trader, Ali Martinez flagged the importance of $64,290 as a support level for Bitcoin.

"If Bitcoin can reclaim $64,290 as support, it is likely to rise towards $76,610," Martinez forecasted. "However, if it fails to surpass $64,290, BTC might retest support at $51,970."

Prominent on-chain analytics firm Santiment noted that the bearish sentiment in the market was high, as negative commentary on most coins trumped positive chatter.
