Bitcoin Price Fails To Price-In “Golden Cross”, Is Fall To $20K Next?

The bullish “golden crossed” pattern that the Bitcoin price completed on Tuesday caused prices to rise higher. The BTC price fell below $23K on Tuesday, however.
BTC dropped nearly 4% in one day to reach a low of $22,458 on today. The rising FUD in crypto markets, macroeconomic factors and higher profit-taking are all reasons why Bitcoin is under pressure.


In a tweet, Michael van de Poppe, a popular crypto analyst, stated that Bitcoin price had reached the $22.5K support level again. In the face of market uncertainty, liquidity moved out of market. Investors book higher profits and liquidity fell.

Since mid-January, Bitcoin has been moving around the $23K mark. There is still a possibility that Bitcoin will fall to $21,700. Traders believe that a fall to $20K will not be in focus despite current market conditions.
The “golden cross” pattern in Bitcoin’s price trend was also completed on February 7, when the 50-MA (red), crossed over the 200-MA(blue) daily timeframe. The “golden cross” pattern is bullish and can extend Bitcoin’s 40% rally in January. However, current market conditions limit an upside move.
