Short term, “Bears become Bulls”

Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView data showed that Bitcoin/USD maintained $50,000 support through the weekend. It had ranged after local highs of $51,500.

As the holiday season began, the pair was calm. However, there was still less liquidity and volatile price movements.

Most traders and analysts took a break from analysis and trading, so the closest target to the upside was the $53,000 market cap level of $1 trillion.

Pentoshi, a popular trader, believes that sellers could be driving down BTC/USD liquidity to $46,000. Then, they would then buy back in to make a rebound.

“Right now, beras on offense. They bring price down to 46k, but there was plenty of resting liquidity. This stops price from moving. He offered a forecast: “They begin to close shorts, and then buy some spot back.”

“Bears are bulls for short-term like me.”

Further, the yearly close is still not a major topic, with Bitcoin still up $21,000 compared to the beginning of 2021.

The popular analyst, who was criticized for misinterpreting Twitter comments, said that Bitcoin was still adhering to his predictions this month.

Cointelegraph reported that stock-to-flow’s parameters allow for significant flexibility when it comes to spot prices, but this is still of value to PlanB, and other investors.

Ad2 – S2F Model intact The key is that BTC $51K remains within the 1 standard deviation range of S2F (roughly $50K-$200K; see chart). S2F model will still be valid and useful if BTC remains within the 1sd band for 2.5 years. You should always make your own call.

Although $135,000 was not the average price for this month according to the new invalidated floor model forecast, it is still a good estimate.
