BTC Price in Turbulent Zone: 5 Things to Watch in Bitcoin This Week

Bitcoin (BTC) starts the new week with consolidation in the air amid some of the least volatile conditions in its history.

Despite losing 5% in the last week, following Bitcoin’s volatile failure is on the trader’s mind.

The question is whether that change will happen in the coming days.

There are many potential catalysts, from macroeconomic data to exchange setups and more, but which one will win and which side will send the price of BTC remains to be seen.

Behind the scenes of the fundamentals of the Bitcoin network, it is business as usual, with miners maintaining their new dynamism and preparing to hit the hardest new time constraints.

Let’s take a look at the key factors that are moving the market and summarize views on how BTC price action could shape up this week.

Bitcoin price remains stable since last week

While anything can and does happen with Bitcoin, the weekend was marked by one word when it came to price action: boring.

After sudden volatility on March 3 due to a combination of concerns from Silvergate Bank and margin calls from exchanges, the BTC/USD pair remained flat.

Data from Cointelegraph Pro and TradingView markets support this, as the spot price has moved within a barely perceptible range.

But the bulls couldn’t recover much of the lost ground, leading Bitcoin to end the week down about 5.1% on Bitstamp.

Michael van de Poppe, an occasional Cointelegraph contributor as well as the founder and CEO of the trading firm Octo, still has reason to believe that the market will soon draw a line under the trend near the current limit.

“Bitcoin’s price action is breaking due to a correction, but still bearing support here.” he said to his disciples on Twitter on the 6th of kal.

“They have already set the index and will look to continue this. It could take another trip to the bend and then go back higher, the time of trouble is missing $21,500.”

Other publication he pointed to a potential current target at $23,000 if the bulls regained some strength.

“I just want to see some price movement today to be honest” continuous A popular Crypto trader song.

“I’ve been staying clear for a few days now with my stop loss at $23,200. I’d like to see a move to $22,800 before anyone dips.”

The report, Daan Crypto Trade, noted that the BTC/USD pair has closed a small gap in CME futures from the weekend.

You need to pass $22,000 or $22,650 for Bitcoin to give the “clear part”.

For Skew trading support, a weekly open of around $22,300 should act as a “wave” for short-term price action.

“This weekly open price will likely trade pivot for the 1-day weekly chart ($19,000) otherwise below the high confirmation above $23,000,” it read. Tweet in the record chart

“We are currently in a turbulent zone. (Tomorrow’s weakness or strength will be key to momentum/direction).”

All eyes are on Powell as the microphone nods to return

The macroeconomic panorama begins to warm up in the next few days after a cold week, with Jerome Powell, the president of the United States of America, who will have to give an opinion in two rounds.

Powell’s words before the US House of Representatives Committee on Financial Services, a classic source of market volatility, could change the general mood – at least briefly – in terms of his language regarding future economic policy.

It is, in particular, interest rates, since H has rejected the next rate hike decision in two weeks.

“Volume expects Bitcoin to pick up mid-next week on Powell’s testimony” confirmed Crypto angel trader, analyst and investor Santa in part of the weekend’s Twitter posts.

Popular research showed that the Tedtalksmacro program was also at the bottom of the non-funding campaign and Japan’s syngraph announcement and press conference at the end of the week as critical points.

Key is certainly a week ahead

As Cointelegraph reported, central liquidity decisions by non-US banks are increasingly seen as a major part of the Bitcoin market.

“Dollar liquidity grows only in March (~+100 billion deposits)” added Tedtalks macro.

“Liquidity comes first, price comes next!”

According to the CME Group FedWatch tool, the odds of the Fed raising rates another 50 basis points in March, up from 25 basis points previously, stood at 28.6% as of March 6.

Funding rates are expected to be inviting

In the derivatives markets, analysts indicate a possible repeat of the conditions that sent the BTC/USD pair to its February highs above $25,000.

This is mainly due to the funds that have been negative twice since BTC’s 5% price drop last week.

“Bitcoin funding rates are doing the same as Ethereum currently, it went negative two times after the pump a few days ago.” he said DecenTrader trading suite in 6 cal.

“Prior to this, the fund was close to negative before rallying to $25,000 on February 12.”

Cointelegraph has published a guide that explains mutual funds and how they work in detail.

The confidence index sets the 6-week low

With a sharper reversal than the price action would suggest, the outlook for the cryptocurrency market is increasingly shedding any hope of hope this month.

According to the Crypto Fear & Greed Index, the mood in the country is now “moderate” while the income is approaching “fear”.

Reading 47/100, the index’s lowest level since mid-January over the weekend.

As Cointelegraph reported, researchers are also questioning the extent of the new cryptocurrency freeze, arguing that the market’s reaction to the Argentgate incident was disproportionate.

“At the moment, traders are more nervous about going long or short in the market,” said Santiment, the research firm that released the results.

Santiment added that that view isn’t necessarily an accurate reflection of market forces, given the aforementioned bottom line situation.

“Therefore, there can be something fishy with an inflated amount of negative opinions, although the perpetual contracts of funds in the exchanges do not necessarily match the opinions,” he concludes.
