After a week of bearish moves, Bitcoin [BTC] price made a slight recovery on Friday. The rise attempted to break above the 200-Day Moving average, which acted as a resistance. It recorded a high at $8294.
The price of BTC at 3: 30 hours UTC on 28th September 2019 is $8176. It is trading 2.27% higher on a daily scale. The entire crypto market turned slightly green after a week of aggressive selling.
While some traders see this as a momentary correction, others are also seeing a reversal.
The bears are eyeing sub $5k levels for a good entry point. However, it echoes with the situation earlier in Q1 this year. While the price has been bearish, the overall sentiments are bullish.
Moreover, even on the downside, crypto traders will be looking for a buying opportunity. UglyOldGoat, crypto trader and analyst tweeted on a sub $5k prediction,
Just as I was bullish at 3,500 bearish at over 11,500 I can only be bullish at 7800 – 8200. Bakkt is bullish and structure changed when we rekt weak specs with future backwardation. The good thing is Bitcoin will be right regardless.
On-chain Vs. Price Movements
The recent uncertainty in price seems to be rising from opposing views of fundamental and technical analyses.
Bitcoin mining hashrate is at an all-time high, the transaction volume and realized price has also increased considerably. Moreover, long-term ‘hodlers‘ have also increased significantly. Leading on-chain analyst Willy Woo tweeted,
Structure is bullish, you can’t turn that around with a whiplash in price. Bull phases and bear phases of market cycles do not turn on a dime, especially on-chain.
However, the break-down below 200-Day Moving average is currently acting as a significant bear indicator. $7000-7500 has been the predicted range of this move. Sawcruhteez, a crypto-trader is turning bullish on technical indicators as well. He tweeted on why he is turning bullish, he said,
That was mainly due to the RSI bull div and the ADX rollover. I mentioned that final confirmation would come from a break of the 4 hour Lucid SAR, which just occurred. Now all systems are a go!
The next couple of weeks will be instrumental in confirming the year-end trend for Bitcoin. The speculations in Bitcoin [BTC] will further increase as halving comes closer well. The scheduled event in May 2020 has been creating a strong influence on market psychology.
