There are multiple causes attributed to BTC’s fall and one of which might be a slight increase in miner’s selling their BTC as MPI (Miner's Position Index) has reached levels where miners are selling. And in this regard, Ki Young Ju believes that MPI seems to be enough to create a local top just before the price falls below $40K.

In addition, the Crypto Fear and Greed index have stayed at high levels (above 90 or "extreme greed" for 2 months) which warns of an incoming pullback.
