Bitcoin (BTC) Pushes to Breakout, Analysts Warn of ‘Limits’ to Uptrend


A crypto watcher said that crypto funds are deploying newly issued equity/nominal capital, which appears to be pushing the cryptocurrency higher.

One cryptocurrency watcher said that crypto funds are deploying newly issued equity/nominal capital, which seems to be pushing the cryptocurrency higher.

Bitcoin seems to be surging up and down in a narrowing price range for the past few days. Despite signs of fracture, some analysts remain cautious. Bitcoin is up more than 8% this week, as high as $39,809.

According to Matthew Dibb, Co-Founder and COO of Stack Funds, crypto funds are using newly issued capital, which appears to be raising the cryptocurrency.

“The new start date for capital allocation/allocation is usually the first day of the month,” Dibb told CoinDesk .

The rally looks like a low leverage, spot focused move. According to data provider Glassnode, funding rates —the cost of holding long positions in perpetual futures—are near zero. A high funding rate is taken to represent excess leverage on the upside.

The daily chart indicates that the cryptocurrency has exited the bi-weekly symmetrical triangle (congestion) pattern and that more gains are possible. 

“Bitcoin looks much better technically ,  Dibb said. “However, we need to see a weekly close above the previous short-term high of $40,904 to regain the confidence of an ongoing uptrend.” The weekly closing takes place at 03:00 at night, connecting the market to Monday. 

Pankaj Balani, co-founder and CEO of Singapore-based Delta Exchange, expects recovery rallies to be short-lived.

“We expect sales to continue and the large supply to be offered at over $45,000 ,  Balani said said.
