BTC Price Set for 'Most Parabolic Phase' This Week

Bitcoin begins the week under significant pressure at key resistance levels, as the end of May approaches. The cryptocurrency is keeping traders vigilant, as historical highs present a challenge to convert into support. The looming question is whether Bitcoin can surpass the $69,000 mark by June.

The week starts quietly with Memorial Day in the United States, reducing institutional activity until May 28. Later in the week, Important U.S. economic data releases will become pivotal for both the crypto market and other risk assets. Bitcoin itself has been struggling with consolidation below its all-time highs for over two months, leaving traders and analysts in suspense. While there are optimistic predictions suggesting a potential six-figure price target for BTC/USD in 2024, concerns about a possible deeper retracement are also prevalent.

As May comes to an end, several factors emerge that could influence Bitcoin’s price movements. Over the weekend, Bitcoin briefly surged above $69,000 but then pulled back after the weekly close, according to data from Markets Pro and TradingView. This move closed its recent gap in the CME Group Bitcoin futures markets, even with the U.S. markets closed for the holiday. A noted trader, Daan Crypto Trades, remarked on the typical weekend price action. Despite the retracement, Bitcoin’s weekly close of around $68,500 marked the strongest performance since early April.

Trading resource Material Indicators emphasized the importance of turning the $69,000 level into firm support. They pointed out a new trend prediction signal indicating a downside risk. The latest data from monitoring resource CoinGlass showed significant areas of liquidity around the current price, making it difficult to predict the next move. Michaël van de Poppe, founder of MNTrading, advised traders to monitor levels closely, suggesting that losing the $66K mark could lead to a retest of lower ranges, offering another buying opportunity.

The debate continues on whether Bitcoin will break out of its current range or experience a breakdown. While there is a general consensus on a potential upward move, the extent of the rise is still debated. Predictions for $95,000 by June and $150,000 by year’s end are being discussed. BitQuant, who predicted the $95K mark, asserted that minor price dips within the current range should not be a concern. Daan Crypto Trades highlighted the historical trend where extended consolidations below all-time highs have led to bull market breakouts.

Conversely, some traders, like Credible Crypto, are preparing for a possible correction towards the $60,000 area. Material Indicators mentioned they are ready for a scenario where $60,000 comes back into play, especially given the current liquidity sentiment. They expect Bitcoin to range for an extended period before making significant moves.

Interestingly, popular trader and analyst Rekt Capital suggested that the latest Bitcoin halving has not yet been fully priced in. In a YouTube video, he discussed Bitcoin’s post-halving re-accumulation phase, which could last up to 160 days. Rekt Capital believes this consolidation phase is beneficial and will eventually lead to a robust price surge. He projected a price target of approximately $150,000 during this most parabolic phase of the cycle.

With U.S. markets closed, Bitcoin may experience limited volatility during Wall Street hours. The focus will shift towards the end of the week when the Producer Price Index (PCE) data, the Federal Reserve’s favored inflation measure, is released. Despite the mixed signals from other inflation data, U.S. stocks continue to reach record highs. Trading resource The Kobeissi Letter noted that this creates a mixed but potentially favorable environment for risk assets like Bitcoin.

Bitcoin whales, or large holders, have been particularly active as the price has neared historic highs. Vivek Sen from Bitgrow Lab noted that whale addresses have shown significant accumulation. Data from CryptoQuant indicated the balance of active whale addresses at nearly half a million BTC, the largest on record. This sustained interest from whales suggests strong underlying demand for Bitcoin, reinforcing the potential for future price rises.
