The future of Bitcoin is looking bleak as the asset has refused to move back above the 200-day moving average. This key indicator is used to show the general market trend and when used in higher time frames, usually overrides technical analysis in the lower timeframes.
Let’s dive in and explore Bitcoin price and adoption.
Bitcoin Price Analysis
On the macro level, the sharp rejection of Bitcoin after the Grayscale news pump further cemented the bears’ power in the current market. There has not been much change on the macro scale in the past week despite wallets with more than 10 bitcoins now at a 3-year high of 157,352. At the same time, the number of Bitcoin addresses (potential holders) with a non-zero balance has exceeded 48.5 million—more than the entire population of Spain.
Adoption is increasing, but the price is lagging, showing that there might be an explosive price move to the upside when Market Makers finally stop suppressing the price.
Short-term traders in last week’s setup are in profit, though the price is far from hitting the take profit level. This weekend, a potential Short with an RR of 3.26 is available. A 15X leverage could turn a 30% profit quickly.
