This MAJOR Indicator Of Bitcoin's Long-Term Future Just BROKE ALLTIME HIGHS....

Bitcoin digital wallet

There are more than 900,000 wallets with at east 1 full Bitcoin in them, according to data from the blockchain explorer Glassnode

In addition to this, wallets holding at least 0.1 BTC are also at an all-time high.

This is considered major long-term bullish indicator...

This reflects that investors are taking advantage of the current bear-market low prices, as they continue to accumulate Bitcoin with a plan to hold it for months, or even years.

Bitcoin's price is 72% below its historical maximum reached 10 months ago in November 2021, at almost USD 69,000.

If you believe Bitcoin will return to previous highs (as it always has), then you understand why someone would want to take advantage of the current price. 

Here's where things get weird...

In 2021, while Bitcoin's price was on the rise with heavy demand fueling price gains, the number of wallets holding 1 Bitcoin actually declined.

But as you can see from the chart, the amount of 1 or more Bitcoin has been steadily increasing throughout 2022... as the price dropped. 

Wallets Holding 1BTC or more on the rise (yellow) while price declines (black)

What does this mean?

These are the smart traders. Those with experience learn to buy at the bottom, and sell at the top. 

 As Wall Street traders continue to cross over into crypto, it's no surprise that we're seeing more experienced investors in the crypto market.  Where many see a 'crash' they see an 'entry point'.

Remember Warren Buffet's famous piece of advice - “Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy and Greedy When Others Are Fearful” - in other words, buy when everyone else is selling. 

But even with a record number of savvy traders, there isn't enough of them to move Bitcoin's price upwards, but they do probably deserve some credit for Bitcoin staying stable in its current $18k - $21k range.  So far, when Bitcoin has gone below $20k, it soon finds people ready to buy.  

A return to a bull market will be fueled by tens of thousands of people buying hundreds of dollars' worth of Bitcoin, not hundreds of people buying thousands worth.

Bitcoin's Gains TWICE As Strong as S&P500 and NASDAQ...

Bitcoin news

Both the stock and cryptocurrency markets are reacting to today's news that US Federal Reserve will increase interest rates by 0.75%.  The measure is aimed at controlling inflation, which remains at its highest levels since the early 1980s, and is seen as evidence that the maintains flexibility and hasn't felt the need to implement more drastic measures, at least yet.

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell pointed out that there are recent indicators that both consumption and production have decreased, but added that the unemployment rate has remained low and that job growth in the first half indicates that we are not in a recession. 

Bitcoin and Stocks on The Rise, But Bitcoin is Outpacing Both Major Indexes...

Following the news Nasdaq gained about 4%, the S&P 500 gained around 2.5%, and Bitcoin surpassed both easily with gains of over 8% at the time of publishing.

CoinBase among stocks to outperform market average...

The company needed a good day following a 21% loss yesterday, today they gained half of that back. 

It's been hell-week for Coinbase - first came news that SEC is closely monitoring Coinbase's operations to determine if the exchange has allowed its users to trade tokens that could be considered unregistered securities. Coinbase denied that it lists securities for trading and stated on its blog that it reviews "every digital asset before it is made available on our exchange, a process that the SEC itself has reviewed."

Then ARK Investments, managed by Cathie Wood, dumped $658 million worth of Coinbase shares, removing it entirely from their portfolio.

They end the day at $58.49 - still, the overall picture isn't great when taking in to account that they launched April 2021 at $400. 

But remember - a return of the crypto bull market and setting a new Bitcoin all time high could send Coinbase back to the $300-$400 range shockingly fast, as their holdings triple in value and increased trading activity would once again have them making millions in exchange fees.

Bitcoin GRABS Analysts Attention as Data Signals Potential RALLY to $30k - The 2 Indicators They're Focusing On TODAY...

Bitcoin breakout

Bitcoin currently has the attention of analysts around the world, as they question if this rally has momentum, and where it could take prices.

The price of Bitcoin jumped over 7% over the past 24 hours, breaking $24,000 to peak at $24,264.  It has been floating around the upper $23k-$24k range since - this comes after lingering in the $19k-$21k range for weeks

At time of publishing BTC is down from  outperforming most other tokens and advancing to the highest levels since the largest crypto plummeted to as low as $18,000 from $30,000 in a severe selloff in mid-June.

Technical Analysis of the Data says this Rally Could Bring Bitcoin Near $30,000 - But It's also Bitcoin's Worst Month Since 2011...

A bad month means many traders simply aren't in the mood for a rally, "There's no indicator/signal/expert on the planet that will end with me dumping more money into Bitcoin.  Talk to me in like... November, maybe" said one user in a crypto traders telegram community. 

Nonetheless, top analysts at crypto intelligence firm Glassnode are confirming “Numerous signals indicate that genuine bottom formation could be underway” adding that “Bitcoin prices have now traded below the Realized Price for over a month, with many signals that a deep and complete capitulation has occurred.”

What They're Looking For Next...

Bitcoin must break out above the $25,000 resistance level, and see a moving average convergence divergence (MACD)—which is a technical indicator—above zero each day in addition to a positive weekly signal.

This together with which momentum indicator like stochastics showing a number above 20% would make the odds of a run to $29k-$30k range possible.  

If we see both of these today, 

In Closing...

I'm viewing the situation like this:

The data indicates a potential BTC rally - no argument from me there.  We just finished one where Bitcoin gained about $3000, and I see repeating something of similar size much more likely than following it up with one nearly twice as large. 

That's feels like too much too soon 

Anything over $27,000 and I'll be pleasantly surprised.

From Chaos Comes 'One Of the LARGEST BULL MARKETS in HISTORY'...?

While the return of the bull market may not be 'close' - there's some signs that it is indeed coming. 

We're not alone, many analysts see a positive future ahead, such as senior analyst of Bloomberg's Commodities Division, Mike McGlone, who says "bitcoin could initiate one of the largest bull markets in history."  

McGlone says that between betting on Bitcoin's collapse, or Bitcoin continuing to gain wider adoption, their “bias is that bitcoin adoption is more likely to continue to rise” .

Other Positive Indicators:

Bitcoin being transferred from exchanges to privately owned wallets is considered a bullish sign, it indicates the owner of that Bitcoin is not looking to sell anytime soon. These investors are considered to be HODLing, and waiting for the bull market to return. 

Bitcoin on exchanges
via CryptoQuant: Amount of Bitcoin available on exchanges.

In fact, the supply of BTC being traded on exchanges hasn't been this low in 3 years.

Traders too fearful to notice - the crypto market already stabilized!

Traders are still on-edge from recent market chaos, the 'Fear & Greed Index' currently rates the Bitcoin market as one with 'Extreme fear' meaning indicators taken into account such as volume, momentum, and social media sentiment show traders hesitant to buy. 

Bitcoin has been trading between $19k and $22k for nearly an entire month!

'Hesitant to buy' and 'selling off' are two very different things - and it's gone somewhat unnoticed that the selloff ended weeks ago.

For Bitcoin especially - this is an extremely stable price range to be holding for weeks now.

Lingering fears...

Until last week, the big question mark hanging over the crypto market was lending platform Celsius and concerns it would be next to collapse.  They leveraged their funds through multiple DeFi platforms, concerns that they could be liquidated still owing millions were valid as it would have caused a ripple effect and likely another round of coin prices crashing down.   

However - they've spent the last week paying off large portions of those debts and now is no longer at high risk of liquidation 

So for now, it appears we won't be seeing any additional over-leveraged crypto platforms collapse. 

Unfortunately, the remaining cloud of fear hanging over the crypto market is a massive one that reaches far beyond crypto.  These fears are shared with the world and come from an economy struggling to grow, out of control inflation, rising gas costs, and global conflict.

JPMorgan Chase Says Bitcoin Currently UNDERVALUED By 28%...

JPMorgan Chase Bitcoin

JPMorgan is telling clients that getting in to Bitcoin at current prices could have major upside for them down the line. The bank believes bitcoin is undervalued by 28% and has set a price target of $38,000 for the coin, which is currently fluctuating at about $29,000.

"We thus replace real estate with digital assets as our preferred alternative asset class along with hedge funds" they wrote.

Last summer, JPMorgan began offering six crypto funds to its wealth management clients, allowing them to diversify their portfolios with bitcoin exposure.

Bitcoin sank below $26,000 for the first time since December 2020 earlier this month.

"We see upside for Bitcoin and crypto markets in general going forward" says strategist Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou.

But the pain isn't limited to crypto, as seen last week when the NASDAQ 's market lost more than Bitcoin. In both cases, inflation fears are being blamed.

This Week's NASDAQ Market Losses Tops Bitcoin's...

NASDAQ vs Bitcoin

The market's anxieties about the impact of inflation on the economy were heightened this week by the quarterly results of major retail chains, which showed smaller earnings than expected. This uncertainty was mirrored not only in the department store industry, but also in other sectors of the economy, putting downward pressure on stock prices.

This week's publication of Target's quarterly financial results started the rough week for many NADAQ listed.  The disappointing numbers reaffirmed the trend of consumers focused on spending on essentials like food, and holding off on things like televisions and bicycles. Target's sales and profitability fell short of expectations, and their stock plunged 25% on Wednesday as a result of the earnings decrease, which was even more severe than Walmart's.

The first warning came with Walmart's quarterly financial statements on Tuesday, which revealed a large dip in profits, triggering a stock price slump that began on Tuesday and has yet to stop.

Walmart began the week at $150/share and is ending it at $118.  Target began the week at $220 and is ending it at $152.

The end result (as time of writing) is Bitcoin losing -1.62% this week, and NASDAQ down -3.79%

Bitcoin gets a bounce...

The "realized price" is a well known metric among Bitcoin price analysists, and is calculated by dividing the sum of the values ​​of all coins at the time they were last moved, by the circulating supply. Analysis company Glassnote points out as the 'realized price' approaches, traders buy without hesistation because they believe they can be confident that Bitcoin is undervalused at the moment.  

The current realized price is $24,000, but traders haven't allowed it to get that low - $26,513 is the lowest BTC has gone during the current downtrend. "This may be due in part to the general market awareness of its (realized price) existence" said Glassnode.

"BITCOIN CRASHING. Great news" Rich Dad Poor Dad author Robert Kiyosaki tweeted last week, adding "Once I know bottom is in I back up the truck. Crashes are the best times to get rich."

But don't get excited yet...

We do have enough information where I can say with confidence - this is just another standard dip. One of the larger ones, but the kind we've had before. By that I mean, the kind where we go on to set new all time highs when it's all over. 

So play it smart from here, because the right moves made now will pay off large than those done in a bull market.  You want to ride the trade you make from the bear market, into the bull market.

On that note, if you're newer to crypto and want a simple, low risk way to get those big future payouts. you want to be dollar cost averaging. It's an insanely simple method, and makes it where you don't need to be right about every move you make. Read about it here, or watch a video on it here.

Charts Indicate Bitcoin Possibly Repeating History...

Charts suggest there is a decent chance history repeats itself for bitcoin and the cryptocurrency shakes off its recent steep drawdown to mount another rally, based on technical analysis from Tom DeMark.

Charts suggest the selling in the world’s two largest cryptocurrencies may run its course soon, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Monday, leaning on analysis from veteran technician Tom DeMark.

“When the charts, as interpreted by Tom DeMark, say that both bitcoin and ethereum could be looking at downside trend exhaustion bottoms this week, if not today, I think you need to take him seriously,” the “Mad Money” host said.

“To me, that says it might be too late to sell and you need to consider buying. I know I am, especially if we get a final leg down” added Cramer, who personally owns some ether, which runs on the ethereum blockchain. He previously owned bitcoin, as well.

Bitcoin earlier Monday reached its lowest point since July when it fell to $32,982.11 per token, according to Coin Metrics. However, bitcoin reversed course during the trading day, ultimately moving higher to around $36,000.

The Oncoming "Avalanche Of Companies" Buying Bitcoin...

Michael Saylor, the CEO of business intelligence software company MicroStrategy (MSTR), the first publicly traded company to add bitcoin to its balance sheet, sees an "avalanche" of corporations that will embrace the cryptocurrency.

"The pitch is bitcoin (BTC-USD) is digital gold, and it's sitting on the world's first digital monetary network," Saylor told Yahoo Finance Live on Wednesday, two days after electric car maker Tesla (TSLA) made headlines for buying $1.5 billion worth of bitcoin.

He also pointed to the digital currency's performance versus the U.S. dollar, making a case that "bitcoin has emerged as an institutional safe-haven asset. Cash is going to be a depreciating asset’

Last Week 'Expert Analysts' At JPMorgan Predicted Bitcoin May Never Go Above $40k Again...



We couldn't help reminding JPMorgan of their recent prediction....



Bitcoin going to $100K, then $150K, then $200K, Says Social Capital’s Chamath Palihapitiya..

 Bitcoin smashed through $40,000 to hit a new record high on Thursday helping to lift the total value of the entire cryptocurrency market above $1 trillion for the first time. The digital coin hit an all-time high of $40,367, just a few hours after blowing past the $39,000 level.

Bitcoin pared some of its gains after hitting a record, last trading at $38,885, up 9.1% higher from a day earlier. The cryptocurrency is up over 30% since the start of 2021 and in the past 12 months has surged 400%...

Analyst Predicts $200,000 Bitcoin In The Next Year - To My Surprise, It's ACTUALLY Possible....

If you're like me you still cringe a little when you read a headline like this, I think I'm still traumatized by Tom Lee, Mike Novagratz, and John McAfee's 2017 appearances on CNBC where they seemingly pulled (ridiculously high) numbers out of a hat and read them on-air as their 'expert prediction' - they repeated this weekly for almost an entire year... then the entire market crashed.

So still take this with a grain of salt - but so far, analyst Willy Woo has correctly predicted the bull run we're in right now, and if his predictions remain true for the next year all Bitcoin owners are going to be very happy.

In the first week of October he stated "In my last update the latest impulse was still forming with an expectation that it would be a bullish buying impulse based on early signs of hidden accumulation being seen on exchanges. This has correctly played out.

We are now coasting upwards with no new changes in the short term on-chain structure. I remain bullish and am awaiting any new changes.

Keen observers will notice there is a bullish supporting trend-line in coin movements forming, which I’ll highlight below."
Woo also stated "The next 3 months: Coin supply has dried up while demand dominates."

This was in October - so that 3rd month is right now, and his description of today's market is accurate.

Looking Ahead: Bitcoin at $200,000 by The Beginning Of 2022...

Today's market is strong and could act as the solid launching pad we need to take us to the moon.

The current average price a Bitcoin holder paid is $7,456, which is the average of the different lots of BTC, valued at the price they had the last time they were moved "you're all geniuses" he says, pointing out that the average investor has already doubled their investment.




One Big Reason: A 19% Decline In Bitcoin Being Held On Exchanges...

Investors are taking their Bitcoin off of the exchanges, which means they don't plan on selling anytime soon.

So this really is just the simple law of supply and demand, the supply is getting lower as demand rises, and that always makes prices rise.

This is why he says he's never had bullish sentiment towards bitcoin like today. "It has never been so bullish for 2021. This re-accumulation phase coincides with the decline in BTC's spot inventory, about twice as long and deep as in the last cycle."

The Icing On The Cake:

Woo's BTC price model (if the final numbers and timing are correct) has Bitcoin breaking $80,000 in the next 3 months! 

He also calls the prediction we'll be seeing $200,000 trades for 1 BTC on block explorers soon 'conservative' saying "$300,000 is not out of the question".
