Bitcoin is ripping higher despite yesterday’s correction.
The cryptocurrency plunged as low as $30,000 yesterday as buying selling rapidly picked up on platforms such as Coinbase, analysts said. This came after Bitcoin peaked at $42,000 late last week. While Bitcoin is not yet in the clear on a short-term time frame, analysts are starting to think that the bottom is in after key technical signs appear.

Overall Trends Positive
“Raw demand. Worthy of note was Grayscale reopening private placements late PM. Open interest dropped ~20% and funding rates are now flat to negative. Bullish. This is still a bull market. Bitcoin heats up very easily, and needs to wash up excesses before continuation.”
The investor did note, though, that there are a number of factors that have driven BTC lower in the near term.
These include but are not limited to:
- A bounce in the U.S. dollar against foreign currencies
- Extremely high market funding meant the market was overextended
- Heavy selling pressure by miners, some long-term holdings, and others
- Guggenheim Investments CIO Scott Minerd announcing a short-term bearish view
- Tether fears
- And renewed regulatory fears
-USD & real rates reversal (temporary IMO)
-heavy selling: miners, long-term holders, macro & CTAs
-Guggenheim talking price down (wants to buy lower)
-JP bearish (bearish since 18K)
-Tether fears (again?)
-renewed regulatory fears (some scare easily)
