WHY BITCOIN’S CORRECTION BOOSTS MARKET OPTIMISM 

The recent steep drop in Bitcoin’s value is seen as highly advantageous for the market’s optimism.

After achieving a record high above $69,000 on Wednesday, Bitcoin experienced a significant downturn, falling below $60,000.

Despite the sharp fluctuations, experts remain optimistic about the market, suggesting that strong movements could be on the horizon.

Positive Market Sentiment from Bitcoin’s Correction

According to a recent analysis by CryptoQuant, the current downturn in Bitcoin’s price is actually encouraging a more optimistic sentiment towards the cryptocurrency.

The on-chain analytics firm pointed out that market indicators suggest a bottoming out based on historical cycles, making the current pullback a welcome event.

This pattern typically involves a series of price movements — both up and down — leading up to the peak of Bitcoin’s value.

“In essence, this indicator predicts ongoing optimism in the market, with significant volatility expected shortly.”

Analyst Aksel Kibar presented a chart on X showcasing Bitcoin’s climb past the $69,000 mark, referring to it as the “FOMO phase.” Previously, he noted Bitcoin’s trading range between $65,000 and $68,000, approaching the November 2021 peak of around $69,000, and warned about the dangers of FOMO at these levels.

Possible Sideways Movement for Bitcoin?

10x Research also shared insights, pointing out the Bitcoin Analog Model that forecasts a downturn followed by a subsequent rally. The firm suggested that the Bitcoin bull run is likely to persist unless major macroeconomic shifts affect market liquidity.

They anticipate that the recent sharp drop in Bitcoin’s value could result in a period of sideways trading over the next couple of weeks. This scenario could particularly affect new investors, while also highlighting the significance of leveraging the last phases of bull markets for optimal gains in the highly volatile crypto market.

Furthermore, the sale of significant Bitcoin amounts by unidentified wallet addresses at the peak, along with possible sales by FTX creditors and Genesis of substantial Grayscale GBTC holdings, might exert downward pressure on prices. This scenario could extend the selling trend for several days, possibly triggering a more profound market correction.
