After all the whipsawing for the last month Bitcoin’s price has ended up back where it was over a month ago (jan 21st), and in fact that last few days have been a continued squeeze in volatility. Generally, after a period of squeezing volatility a big move follows in either direction. For now Bitcoin is in no trading land. The price could move either way, basically a coin flip.
There is still support coming from the 50 day moving average, which BTC has stayed above since the breakout in early January. As long as the price remains above the 50 day the price is technically in a bullish state. However, since BTC has yet to retest the 50 day MA we have not seen the real appetite from the bulls to continue this rally.
The 200 day moving average is still far down near $19743. A move down to the 200 day would be nearly a 15% decline in price from these levels. The price could move down to retest those levels and still remain in a bullish consolidation pattern.
Another place BTC is likely to find support is around $21500 (-8.8% below curren price). This is the FTX local top created last November.
There are no new macro coming out until mid-march so Bitcoin is likely to continue the whipsaw and trade between these supports ant the recent resistance found just above $25k.
