Two weeks ago, we detailed why we’re sitting on the sidelines with an expectation of sideways price action to close the year.
Fast-forward to today, and the same diagnosis applies for Bitcoin and the broader crypto asset class. The macro risk environment is beginning to favor the bear camp, and it’s certainly not a time to be aggressively pushing longs.
Meanwhile, the spot flows seen on-chain continue to diverge from price action, suggesting that once this consolidation phase is complete, an upward break appears to be the higher likelihood scenario.
We’re watching for Bitcoin to reclaim 53,000 before we put our elevated cash back to work in positions.
Until then, we’re avoiding a good majority of trading action in this low-conviction tape where whipsaws have become commonplace.
