Technical Analysis (short-term)

After testing the lower Bollinger band on an 18-hour time frame, it seems the price might react to this formed support level. A Bollinger band squeeze can be seen in lower time frames. Therefore, a bullish divergence is forming on the 18-hour chart but is not confirmed yet. It will be confirmed by closing a candle above $49k.

Technical Analysis (long-term)

14 EMA on 4D Heiken-Ashi has been a good support level for Bitcoin in the long term. The directional movement index (DMI) can underline the strength and direction of a price movement. Bitcoin is below this EMA since breaking it down. Also –DI>+DI, but ADX value suggests a weak trend. In the following days, a pull-back to the EMA can be expected.

Onchain Analysis

Interestingly, the main sell-pressure (~83%) in the last 7D were the coins last moved (bought) at >$45K Purple square aka “Top Buyers.”

These top buyers almost have 31% of the supply in their possession (blue square). This means we have not seen significant selling pressure from old coin holders.
