Yesterday Bitcoin’s price briefly went over $50,000 per coin after rallying nearly vertical after the dip that followed the ETF announcement. It’s a good time to revisit this article about Big Round Numbers. It’s possible $50k becomes a key level in price over the next quarter or half year.
The CPI report came in this morning with higher inflation than expectations. This could put a short term damper in US equities and crypto markets as fed rate cut expectations will be pushed further back.
It seems for now the new established trading range is between $40k and 50k until some outside catalyst drives the price outside this range. The market structure continues to remain bullish with Bitcoin trading far above it’s 200 day moving average and the average itself continues to climb higher.
