$ 16,000 an eye for a possible next move

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC / USD rising from a low of $ 17,592 on Bitstamp before firmly declining to $ 20,000.

Terms of trade with a low liquidity ratio had made headlines a miserable weekend as the largest cryptocurrency fell to levels not seen since November 2020.

Although the losses have been recovered, there was a feeling of deja vu in the market the other day. $ 20,000 had returned as resistance, this had set a historic high for Bitcoin for three years from December 2017 to December 2020.

It was also the first time that BTC / USD had declined in the first half of the half.

Although some have reacted to this advice, experienced market participants continued their understanding of recent pricing measures, which still corresponded to the historical pattern in the bear market.

“To put things in perspective: Bitcoin collapse of 74% as of now is not unusual,” market analyst Holger Zschaepitz acknowledged.

“In history, there have already been 4 crashes where the leading cryptocurrency went from a high to a low of> 80%.”

As for what could be ahead, attention was focused on $ 17,000 as a potential short-term goal. A short squeeze higher, as the popular Twitter account Credible Crypto pointed out, was not on the menu.

Partner trader and analyst Rekt Capital added that the 200-week moving average of Bitcoin (MA), a key support line in bear markets, is still functioning as before.

This week’s red candle, on the other hand, was supposed to be one of the largest in the history of Bitcoin in dollars, at around $ 7,000.

Data from the Coinglass chain analysis platform added that June 2022 was going to be the worst in history and even hit 2013 in terms of losses.

As a sign of investor pressure due to substitute performance, more BTC was sold at a loss in three days to June 19 than at any other time, according to figures from chain analysis firm Glassnode.

Additional concerns were focused on the financial upheaval of Bitcoin miners. Not everyone, though approved that the participants in the network feel trapped to the point that submission would result.
