Yesterday, Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, went on CNBC and said that Bitcoin could be revolutionary. The last time a large money manager went on CNBC talking bullish about Bitcoin was Paul Tudor Jones in 2020 calling it the fastest horse in the race as an inflation hedge (BTC went from $10k to $60k over the next year). Of course, this new statement by Fink does not mean the price is going to just automatically go up, but it does mean there may finally be some other large market participants besides Saylor (who is buying every couple of months with borrowed money).
The price did rally for a short period on the news of Finks statements, but US jobs numbers and FOMC minutes may be tempering the rally. The price is currently consolidating under resistance, which can be a sign of another move higher. The price remaining above $30000 is an important number because of it’s psychological impact on investors. It’s an easy number to view as support therefore it’s a critical level to hold if there is in fact more steam left in this rally. The four support levels to pay attention to in H2 are $30k, $29.8k (Saylor’s entry), and of course the 50 and 200 day moving averages($28k and $25k). A break out above $32k would likely be followed by a move to $36k-$40k which are old support levels from 2022.
