In a recent report shared with CryptoSlate, OKEx says Bitcoin testing critical levels is nothing to worry about. According to OKEx, the weakening of the U.S. dollar could be what drove Bitcoin’s price down.

The U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) has been trading below its four-month trend line, which is why the U.S. Federal Reserve is expected to cut interest rates in the next few months.

While lower interest rates will help strengthen the dollar, a weaker dollar could boost exports from the U.S. and improve domestic profits. Both scenarios could be beneficial to Bitcoin, the Malta-based exchange said.
