Rekt Capital said,

“If history repeats, and BTC keeps the $43,000.00 level of support… then BTC might once again enjoy upside to the high $40,000s or even the low $50,000s.”

BTC and the NASDAQ

Filbfilb, cofounder of trading software DecenTrader, highlighted the correlation between Bitcoin and NASDAQ price movements in this chart. He noted that “Since 2019, multiple sales at all-time highs in the NASDAQ have led to a sharp selloff which saw BTC also correct at that time.”

Filbfilb stated,

“The result was an inverse bullish head and shoulders reversal. This was confirmed by testing the 50 DMA and ATH on legacy and BTC. It is possible that this scenario will be a reality.”
