Zooming in, you can see that “nothing has changed.”

Data from TradingView and Cointelegraph Markets Pro showed a sharp U turn for Bitcoin/USD at the beginning of trading. $1,600 was achieved in just three hours.

The pair was trading at $30,400 at the time of writing. This is a return to the gains made in the previous days.

After Bitcoin’s initial plunge, support levels failed to offset Michael van de Poppe of Cointelegraph. $29,000 is now on Michael van de Poppe’s radar.

He tweeted, “Very Simple, Bitcoin must hold here to have an exam at $33K area possible,” as BTC/USD reached $31,150.

“If it doesn’t, this will nosedive quickly to the $29K range.”

Despite recent strength gains and two-week highs, the mood was not upbeat for many.

Popular trading account Crypto Tony has targets that go beyond the short-term. These include as low as $22,000 for those who have as little as $22,000.

He said that current price action was still following Bitcoin’s lifetime trend, suggesting that the familiar pain-before–gain scenario was also now being played out.

He analyzed that if BTC/USD had reached the lowest point of its 2020 halving price, in November 2021 (which it did), then it would have approximately six months’ worth of bearish behavior before rebounding to its next halving in May 2024.
