Bitcoin has slowly been drifting downward since it momentarily rose above $30,000 in April. The volatility continues to diminish ahead of a long weekend and the uncertain state of the US debt ceiling.
The move down today did create a higher low just above $25700 which was last visited on May 12th. It will be important in the coming days to see if Bitcoin can close the month of May above this level. If Bitcoin cannot find support in the coming month and rise back above $30,000 then it becomes more likely that the price remaining in this trading range for the remainder of the year.
Many market participants are expecting Bitcoin to sell off after the US reaches an agreement to raise the debt ceiling. This is because Bitcoin is used by many as a hedge against US defaulting on its debt. A wave of sellers could push Bitcoin back down to the 200 day moving average where bulls would need to step in if this years rally is going to continue.
There are also factors like Ordinals, BRC-20 and the upcoming halvening that are bullish for the Bitcoin price. It just seems with all the uncertainty around fed funds rates, inflation and the debt ceiling the price volatility is being squeezed by indecision in the market.
The hype of AI stocks and the recent outperformance of NVDA and the NASDAQ could be adding the lack of volume in the crypto markets as investors chase momentum.
Join us in discord where we will actively be following Bitcoin’s price action even when it’s dull and not volatile.
