Bitcoin price 2017 comparison
An analysis of Binance order book activity by Material Indicators shows that large-volume traders were still manipulating spot prices by moving ask and bid price levels.
At the time of writing, with just about 3 hours remaining for the weekly candlestick to close, volatility continued to edge back into spot markets.
Decentrader of February 18 tweeted saying:
“The recent move from $17k to $23k matches the 2017 move around the 1000 day mark. Price ranged and moved slightly higher for 30 days and then put in another big move of roughly equal size. If Bitcoin continues to mirror 2017 we could be in for a big move this week.”
Decentrader CEO Filbfilb also stated that $180,000 was “the target” for BTC/USD bull rally.
Tense atmosphere among traders
While analysts project that bitcoin could be in for a major bull ride, traders are still sceptical owing to the huge price drops they witnessed towards the end of last year.
Out-of-hours trading has also been seeing bulls pushing for a support-resistance flip of the key level, marking the beginning of a major resistance cloud with several long-term trend lines. And even as the week closed on a high note, the atmosphere among traders has been tense as BTC faces a difficult resistance level ahead.
A popular trader known as Josh Rager for instance tweeted saying:
“Sunday price movement can typically only be trusted towards daily close. Other than that, just gotta hope it stays in current range.”
