Bitcoin price holds $23.5K, leading bulls to say ‘it’s different this time’

Crypto winters are similar to Stockholm syndrome, where captives form a psychological bond and become close to their captors. They can flip even the most bullish crypto supporters bearish within a very short time.

After Bitcoin (BTC), which was recovered above $23,000, was widely condemned as a fakeout and the market headed for new lows, evidence of this reality was evident on July 19.

Although it is possible that new lows will be set in the future, here are some analysts’ views on how the breakout of Bitcoin could look.

It’s “different” this time

The pointed message “this time is different” was posted by Trader XM (a pseudonymous Twitter user), who shared the following chart that explains why Bitcoin is headed higher.

The chart shows that BTC price didn’t retest the range low, even though there were four retests for the range high. This suggests that buyers are stronger than sellers.

Justiinape, a Twitter user, responded to the post by Trader XM with “$27K-$28K appears imminent.”

Trader XM stated,

“Agree, my man. Move to $27-28K and then months of consolidation. Let’s have a great time before we go into hibernation.

The $27,100 mark is the next major resistance

Whalemap stated,

“$27,100 should represent the first resistance to our climb. There is a huge supply gap between the current prices and $27K.

Shorts get REKT

Dylan LeClair, a cryptocurrency analyst, posted this chart that shows the impact that Bitcoin’s rise above $23,000 on futures traders.

The chart shows that there were a lot of Bitcoin short positions between June 15th and July 15, and these traders are now on the losing side.

LeClair said,

“Tens to thousands of BTC short open interest are currently underwater.”

Although Bitcoin could reverse course and head lower again, there is still a chance that it will. However, current momentum suggests more upside in the near term.

The total cryptocurrency market is now worth $1.055 trillion. Bitcoin’s dominance rate at 42.1%.
