Crypto enthusiast and client portfolio manager, Crypto Quantamental shared interesting data regarding Bitcoin trading volume in his Tweet:
We've just seen the biggest volume spike in the history of Bitcoin and #crypto. Capitulation (11/15-11/25) started the massive volume spike and now this recovery 11/26-11/28 is the highest EVER. Is this the capitulation and $btc volume breakout we've been looking for? (1/N) pic.twitter.com/dloWqaK87q

Additionally, crypto trader, The Crypto Dog shared another interesting facet signalling buyers’ interest among institutions,
Talked to my #bitcoin OTC friend, right now he says "many buyers, but very difficult to find sellers."#Crypto's dark pools are darker than traditional markets, so I'm excited to see the recent crash's OTC action reflect on exchanges.
Just thought I'd pass on the hopium. ?

He further shared,
“Most people just want to know when it’s safe to buy #Bitcoin for the long run. The answer is now. We will likely cruise at low levels ($2-5k) for awhile. Don’t try to time it, “average in slowly during this time, throw a bit of your paycheck each month and hold.”
Another popular crypto investor and trader, Crypto Don Alt says, this is just a “bearish retest of previous consolidation,”
$BTC daily update:
Strong showing today.
That said, so far it's nothing more than a bearish retest of previous consolidation.
To truly turn bullish I want to see 4550+
Two days to go to turn the monthly decent (4723).
Can the bulls perform a miracle?
