Bull Market Continues?

Bitcoin went sideways for months on end, leaving many investors questioning whether the bull run was over. Of late, however, the market sentiment appears to have shifted, at least as measured by the Bitcoin Fear and Greed Index:

There have been a number of promising market indicators in the past month suggesting that a sharp rise may be around the corner. From the reduction in leveraged shorts to growing evidence of a supply squeeze, Bitcoin bears appear to be on the back foot, at least for now.
