BTC registered five consecutive green candles on the one-hour chart before seeing a minor retrace from the daily top.

The popular crypto analyst that goes by the Twitter handle name of Credible Crypto pointed towards the Bitfinex limit order book bids to draw attention towards the market sentiment. He said, not much has changed over the past week in the on-chain fundamentals of BTC as whales continue to buy at lower prices sold by panic-ridden retail.

Quoting his early tweet from December 17 Credible Crypto said that the Bitfinex whales continued accumulation around $45K and as market lows got filled, BTC is now looking for a rebound. The crypto analyst predicted that the top cryptocurrency could rise up to $55K before the next market sell-off kicks in.

Can BTC reclaim $60K?

Bitcoin hit its all-time high of $68.789 in the second week of November but saw its monthly returns in negative due to market sell-off starting in the second week of November. With another major correction in the first week of December, BTC has lost all its gains from October and is currently down 30% from ATH.

While market analysts were predicting a bullish final quarter, November and December have proven to be quite bearish for the crypto market. BTC missed its first price target set around $98K on the very popular stock to flow chart popularised by analyst Plan B. The analyst acknowledged that the BTC price would make its first major deviation after failing to achieve the target price, but also noted that $69K is not the top. He said,

“I don’t think $69K was the top for this halving cycle. If $69K were the top than a typical bear market -80% drawdown would bring the bottom to $14K .. below 2017 ATH ($20K) and below 200WMA ($18K). Nah, that has never happened and IMO will never happen.”

Bitcoin is currently eyeing the strong support of $50K following which it would set its eyes on the sub-$60K zone. With holiday seasons just around the corner and inflation rates at decade highs, BTC could build a similar momentum it did at the same time last year.
