Market Overview

Bitcoin (BTC) rebounded strongly after briefly touching the 120-day Moving Average (MA120) around $56,552. Drawing parallels from January to October 2023, Bitcoin exhibited a similar pattern, with an expansive fluctuation range forming after a spike to short-term peaks. This is coupled with a swift downturn where short-term investors were shaken out before rallying into a new uptrend. From the candlestick patterns, the largest retrace of this cycle is 23.3%. If we witness a strong upward close on the weekly chart, and an influx of copycat coins starts their rotation, then $56,552 could potentially be the floor of the current pullback.
