Bitcoin Moves Sideways, But Looks Set For A Moon Week

Monday 10 May 2021, 8:30 AM AEST - 1 month ago

Bitcoin re-tested resistance on its way up to $60,000 and was pushed back to support. At the time of writing, BTC trades at $57,500 with sideway movement in the lower and higher timeframes.

Anonymous trader IncomeSharks has set support at $53,000 with $59,000 as an initial price target which BTC managed to reach. However, selling pressure on that mark appears high with a lot of retail investors still driving the price action.

Analyst Willy Woo shares the same thesis and predicts a migration of capital from altcoins into BTC soon. As shown below, BTCs dominance has entered a zone of high probability for a trend reversal, as Woo claimed.

Many investors wonder if BTC has reached a local top, as it did in January 2018 when a 3-year bear market began. However, Woo believes this cycle has different indicators with a lot of BTC switching from short-term investors to strong holders.

As seen above, in 2017 BTC had a parabolic run, and the number of coins held by short-term investors grew. The opposite has occurred in this bull run. As BTCs price rises, the percentage of its supply going into long-term holders increases in an unprecedented fashion. Woo added:

No way are we entering a bear market. Thats obvious this week from price action, but not so obvious 2 weeks ago when the sky was falling. Coins moving to corporate treasuries likely making an impact.
