Market Pullback Nearly Matches Average Depth, Exceeds Typical Duration

Analyst Rekt Capital points to a delayed Bitcoin breakout because the June downtrend failed to establish itself as new support upon retesting. However, he says this trendline remains key for observing any potential shifts in the trend moving forward.

According to his analysis, the pullback is close to average in terms of depth and above average in terms of duration.

Still, that doesn’t mean we are ready for a rebound just yet – according to engineer, founder, and analyst Willy Woo, who has 1.1 million followers on X and is no stranger to the scene.

Woo says “miners are still bleeding out, writhing in pain”, meaning that until the situation for miners improves, indicating greater overall market health and profitability, a market reversal might not be imminent.

200-Day EMA Test Could Signal Entry Point Amid Expected Volatility

According to Altcoin Sherpa, the market is approaching a critical point as it tests the 200-day EMA for the first time in months, coinciding with the range low.

This scenario suggests a potential bounce to around US$56k (AU$83K), with expectations of significant volatility. This juncture could serve as a potential entry point for investors, though Sherpa says it remains uncertain if this marks the absolute bottom of the market trend.

Sherpa added that the upcoming days are crucial for market trends.

It’s quite common for the 200d EMA to get lost for a bit so don’t freak out if this happens now. Price can trade below it and still be bullish later on. But you have to keep your eyes peeled overall and watch low time frames.
