Market overview

BTC has breached a key support level of $63,500, setting sights on the next target around $59,800, which is roughly the midpoint of the bullish candlestick pattern formed on February 28th. The primary aim of this adjustment phase is to reach the $59,000 level, which presents a strategic location for investors to gradually accumulate spot holdings. Both ETH and SOL positions can be adjusted following the comparative strength of their respective exchange rates.

The upcoming Federal Reserve's interest rate meeting on March 20th is expected to retain the current interest rate, making it ideal for investors to stay defensive and await optimal retracement levels for BTC towards the end of March. This prudent approach is particularly suited for the majority of investors in the current market circumstances.

The current donation address holds 3500+ SOL worth $600,000. Though it still has a certain gap from $10 million, this narrative has a decent imaginative space (
