BTC price inches back toward $62,000
TradingView and Cointelegraph Markets Pro data confirmed that Tuesday’s volatility was over and that sideways price movements have returned.
Cointelegraph reported that BTC/USD rose nearly $4,000 before reaching its peak. However, momentum waned to drop to $62,400 by the time of writing.
Analysts continued to ignore bearish theories in the face of a post-halving fourth quarter.
TechDev’s popular Twitter account summarized “Market looks primed”
An additional post examines Fibonacci levels which have determined Bitcoin price cycles tops in the 2013 and 2017 post-halving quarter-four periods.
If BTC/USD is able to repeat its history, the $73,500 upcoming extension of 4.236 would be the beginning, not the end of the most intense phase.
“Will this mark the top or will it just barely exceed log 2.272 once more?” He wrote that he couldn’t be certain, but he did expect the top of the 2-week RSI channels to tell him.
“But if neither is expected, and instead believe BTC will suddenly top the linear 4.236 for first time ever in history, with the 2-week RSI also failing the channel, that’s a very low probability bet.”
