“Failed Bart pattern. First attempt at a pullback was rejected. This market has no fear!!”
Furthermore, for any asset, even in a bull market, a pullback is necessary for its sustainable increase. It forms higher highs and higher lows. However, building lows is also essential to the rise as well.
Tone Vays, crypto-trader and chart analyst noted,
“if this bull run continues closer to the halving hype then there may not be a significant pullback and the halving hype can drive Bitcoin into yet another bubble.”
The traders are expecting a significant pullback in Bitcoin [BTC] anytime as the rise can lead to unstable economic impacts in and around the cryptocurrency markets. Nevertheless, Bitcoin has been relentless as it continues to hold its gains.
However, a break above $10000-$11000 is also on the cards with the new-found vigor with institutional and retail investors.
