Asks stack up over $ 33,000

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed that BTC / USD strengthened once again after a new burst raised it to $ 32,200 on Bitstamp.

The pair peaked on the second day with more bullish momentum, but this still did not impress experts, who generally thought the movements were unreliable.

These speculations continued into the day, amid discussions about whether the latest benefits equated to “dead cats.”

“BTC is ready for a bigger movement. Before you monkey in, remember how cryptocurrencies like to squeeze shorts and trap long pants,” on the chain’s analytical resource Index wrote in one of several tweets over the past 24 hours.

“You can reduce the risk by waiting for a breach to be confirmed or forged. FireCharts shows where the liquidity lies in the order book. Closing of the month Tue.”

Order book data from the main stock exchange Binance, meanwhile, showed a solid $ 61 million sales wall that appeared at $ 33,500 at the time of writing.

The popular Twitter account Il Capo from Crypto continued its bearish stance but acknowledged that the jump had gone against previous forecasts.

Member account Venturefounder added that BTC / USD would have to restore its 200-day moving average close to $ 43,000 to “have a new bull market again,” calling such a goal a “downhill battle.”

Whales wait their turn

While unacceptable amounts followed the jump, meanwhile, further concerns were focused on whales.

As Caue Oliveira, an analyst at Brazilian research firm BlockTrends, has pointed out, Bitcoin’s largest units have not yet shown that the recent slump is a macroeconomic floor.

“Whales / institutions have not yet used all their firepower on the market!” he compiled in a Twitter thread.

“These large units continue to reduce their activities and expose their caution to the global course of events. A close examination of their movements can give a true signal of a real turnaround.”

Oliveira went on to say that operations from the Coinbase Pro institutional platform also indicated that most investors were waiting on the sidelines.

“At the moment, I do not see any evidence of a real ‘buy dip’ in these participants,” he added.

Whalemap’s whale-focused monitoring tool further claims that without a 200-week moving average, Bitcoin would not have entered a true macroeconomic bottom.

This moving average was around $ 22,200 on May 31st.
