We can now look back at September and say it is significant that Bitcoin’s price did not fall below the yearly low after a CPI print that shocked equity markets. You should also note that gold took out it’s yearly lows as well. This probably doesn’t mean that Bitcoin is going to enter a bull market in Q4 but it does mean you can probably trade the range. It’s likely in the coming months Bitcoin will swing between $19k and $25k as it continues to consolidate.
If June was the end of price capitulation we are now entering a period of time capitulation. You can see this if you go look at a full history of Bitcoin’s price action. After a bull market top the price quickly sells off and then goes sideways for long periods of time. It is my belief we are entering the long sideways phase.
It is certainly possible Bitcoin makes a new low in the end of 2022 or 2023 but it will take time. This isn’t a moment to just short and walk away. There will most likely be good shorting opportunities if you are patient and wait for relief rallies to occur. This is probably the time to start DCAing in if you are HODLr type with the plan of having at least a year or more to buy near these prices. It’s been more than 3 months now that Bitcoin has been trading near or below $25k.
