Even with a potential resolution of the debt ceiling the Bitcoin price volatility remains muted. The Bitcoin price did move up when news broke that a deal was made between Biden and McCarthy. However, the price met resistance at the 50 day moving average for the first time since early 2023.
A few situations are likely here. This could have been a sell the news type event where many were shorting Bitcoin expecting a big move down on the resolution. It’s also possible the market is in a bullish phase and there were genuine buyers ready to pick up tokens regardless of which way things went. The decision still has to pass through other parts of government so maybe this is just hesitation from investors that something else could delay the decision.
The 50 day moving average is a key level for the Bitcoin bulls to push through to sustain a rally into the second half of the year. A sign that there could be a rally in the second half of the year would be Bitcoin reclaiming the 50 day moving average with more “bad news” (things that should be bad for the price) events.
