Bitcoin Price Analysis: End-of-Correction Pattern Hints $BTC Rally to $73k in May 

Bitcoin Price

This week was highly volatile for Bitcoin attributing to factors like the dovish Fed meeting result, BTC and ETH ETFs launched in Hong Kong, and post-having correction. A long price spread from $64700 to $56500 in BTC price triggered uncertainty in the altcoin market as well, projecting a lack of dominance of bull or bears. However, the last four-day rally in Bitcoin has titled the trader’s sentiment in buyers’ favor projecting a potential for higher rally.

Under the influence of a falling channel pattern, the Bitcoin price witnessed a steady correction for the past four weeks. The downtrend tumbled the coin value from $72756 to $56500 registering a 22.34% loss. 

However, the correction trend reverted above the 50% retracement level as the BTC ETFs witnessed a positive inflow on Friday. The positive turnaround surged the price by 13.2% to currently trade at the $63987 mark.

This upswing gives a breakout of the resistance trend of the falling channel pattern signaling the end of the correction trend.

In a recent analysis by the on-chain data tracker Lookonchain, significant Bitcoin (BTC) transactions were observed, highlighting a whale’s aggressive accumulation over the past few months. 

According to Lookonchain, this particular investor has added a substantial amount of Bitcoin to their holdings, purchasing an additional 1,500 BTC, valued at approximately $88.25 million, in just the last two days. This acquisition comes on the heels of a previous purchase where the same entity bought 4380 BTC for $282.38 million as the price of Bitcoin dipped.

If the BTC price sustains above the channel pattern, the buyers drive a rally to $67450, followed by $47380.

Technical Indicator 

  • Exponential Moving Average: The BTC price back above 20-and-50-day EMAs indicates the short-term sentiment aligns with the broader bullish rally.
  • Average Directional Index: A downtick daily ADX slope at 26% indicates the prevailing bearish momentum is weakening.
