Bitcoin continues to hover around MicroStrategy’s breakeven price on their Bitcoin purchases. This including the psychological barrier of $30,000 is an important test for the demand of buyers in this recent rally. While, $30k has broken a few times the Saylor entry at $29.8k has was defended over the last two days of trading. Because of the markets obsession with big round numbers we are expecting further consolidation at these levels before either retesting a key moving average like the 50 day or 200 day, or a move up to retest the January 2022 low.
The risk-reward in the current situation is not favorable if you believe Bitcoin could retest the 200 day moving average before moving up to $33k. That’s risking a 30% draw-down for slightly less than a 10% gain. It is for this reason that “smart money” will be waiting for a significant pull back before adding to this rally. However, if there is genuine demand for the token coming from new participants than the price could meet no resistance at the Jan 2022 low and head back up to the CME gap near $38k.
The US equity markets have not present a clear direction for Bitcoin to follow either after the CPI data came in last week slightly better than expectations. More consolidation and somewhat sideways movement could be the case for Bitcoin in the coming weeks.
