Crypto's full swing recovery - 1

Bitcoin

BTC has tested the highs since June 13 near $23,700, and on Wednesday, it is trying to consolidate above its 50-day moving average. The dynamics near that line often acted as a reliable medium-term trend indicator.

Only a strong buy above this level can serve as a firm reversal indicator in the next few days. If the upside momentum stalls, as it did in February and March this year, we should be prepared for a sharp increase in selling. BTCUSD also exceeded the 200-week average during the last growth wave but fixing above this level at the end of the week should be considered a reliable signal.

Cryptocurrency Fear & Greed Index

The cryptocurrency Fear & Greed Index climbed to 31 by Wednesday after more than two months in "extreme fear" territory. After waves of capitulation in May-June 2022, bitcoin quotes have been below the realised price for a month now. Other signals of a potential bottom forming have also emerged, Glassnode notes. CryptoQuant, the research firm, has warned investors that further sales of BTC miners in a falling market could return pressure on prices.
