Volatility is the word for the month and this is what cryptocurrency investors saw today as Bitcoin ( BTC ) rallied following concerns about the Biden administration’s executive order regarding crypto . It turned out to be a “nothingburger.”
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro, TradingView show that Bitcoin prices spiked 10.42% to $42,606 after traders traded near $39,000 for the past few trading days. This was due to cautious traders flooding back into the market.
Here are some thoughts from market analysts and traders about the latest move. Also, keep an eye out for areas of support or resistance.
“Different pump, same story”
According to crypto analyst “Plan C” and pseudonymous user on Twitter, Wednesday’s Bitcoin move was just a repetition of recent behavior. He posted this chart, which stated, “Different pumps, same story.”
Further, Plan C:
“#BTC must break the downtrend resistance band’ AKA Uptrend Suspension Band and then keep it as support. This is a cry wolf move. Uptrend Support Band: $43,564 to $46,265
Independent market analyst, “Crypto_Ed_NL”, agreed with this sentiment. He suggested additional sideways trading in and below.
“No, this theory isn’t new Elliott Wave… It’s what it is that I believe is next. Pump-range-pump-dump-range-dump-range-pump.”
It is not a good idea to be too confident!
Delphi Digital analysts noted that Bitcoin is now rubbing up against the “simple trendsline connecting the local highs of December 2021 to February 2022.”
Delphi Digital says that now that BTC has risen above $40,000 traders should “look out for this level between $42,500 and $43,000 to be tested.” This is exactly what happened in March 9th.
Delphi Digital said:
“Contrarian sentiment analysis can be a good place for you to start looking for trades similar to the recent rally in prices above the $34,000 lows. However, we warn that the worsening macro- and global backdrop is still a crucial consideration for market performance at the moment.”
