Analysts debate on whether this time will be different as Bitcoin replicates the pre-breakout pattern of 2020

On the peer-to-peer bitcoin network, you can transfer bitcoin, a decentralized digital currency. Blockchain is a term used to refer to a public distributed ledger where bitcoin transactions are stored and cryptographically validated by network nodes. By adopting the alias Satoshi Nakamoto, an unidentified person or group of people created the cryptocurrency in 2008. In 2009, when its implementation was made available as open-source software, the currency was put into circulation. A public ledger that stores bitcoin transactions is called a blockchain. It is implemented as a chain of blocks, where each block has a cryptographic hash of every block before the chain’s genesis block[c]. Applications for readily available software are used to broadcast transactions to this network in the format payer X sends payee Z Y bitcoins. Despite reaching a new weekly high on October 18, while traders awaited movement, Bitcoin was unable to surpass $20,000 at that time.

According to data, BTC/USD once again defied volatility on the day. Despite greater gains for US stocks at the Wall Street open, the pair remained notably steady. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite Index were up 1.5% and 1.2%, respectively, at the time of writing. According to the Kobeissi Letter, a source of financial commentary on Twitter, “We are currently experiencing another well overdue relief rally in markets.” “A bounce was necessary after nearly straight-line downward price movement for more than a month.”

The post went on to issue a caution over the impending Federal Reserve meeting, where a further rate hike will be revealed. “However, we are far from in the clear as Q3 earnings start and the next Fed meeting draws near. Use stops to avoid getting stuck, it advised. Crypto analysts therefore mostly kept to previous forecasts when it comes to short-term price movements because the atmosphere was still unsure. According to Michal van de Poppe, founder, and CEO of trading platform Eight, “the area around $19.3K is crucial to hold, and then we can expand to $22.2K.”

Popular trader Il Capo of Crypto predicted that Bitcoin would reach $21,000 during the relief rally and said that it was “set to pump to 20k+.” In his more cautious assessment of the possible range for BTC/USD in the upcoming week, trading colleague Crypto Tony pointed to the region around $20,000 as a plausible location for a choice to be made on a longer-term trajectory.

Meanwhile, significant findings concerning the nature of the current price setting emerged from the research of exchange order books. A significant wall of resistance was in place at $20,000 on Binance, the largest exchange by volume, which on-chain analytics site Material Indicators compared to November 2020. At that point, Bitcoin unexpectedly overcame the $20,000 ceiling to start months of growth to new all-time highs of around $60,000. According to Material Indicators, “the last time BTC had a sell wall this big immediately above the active trading range was Nov 2020.” Il Capo of Crypto also emphasized activity on the FTX platform for derivatives. He pointed out that traders there had put in a lot of support, saying that this was “driving the price up.”
