Rejected once again as it attempted to reclaim the $40,000 area, Bitcoin trades just north of $39,000. The first crypto by market cap is moving on a low timeframe range between the mid area of its current levels, and around $48,000.
In higher timeframes, Bitcoin seems trapped between the low $30,000s and the high $60,000s. Whenever it approaches, traders turn to high fear of high greed levels.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin trades at $39,300 with a 3% and 7% loss in the last 24 hours and 7 days, respectively.
Data from analyst Ali Martinez suggest traders are yet to enter the fear territory as BTC’s price still holds its current levels. A majority of operators seem to be optimistic.
As seen below, the long to short ratio on crypto exchange Binance stands at 2.88, meaning traders are dominantly long. Around 74% of the traders on this platform took long positions as opposed to 25%.
In that sense, Martinez advised traders to stay cautious as Bitcoin rarely does what the majority expects. While the price of the first crypto seems to be recovering in short timeframes, bulls are yet to display conviction.
The analyst added the following on potential support levels for BTC’s price in case of more downside:
Bitcoin last line of defense is the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $38,530. Breaching this support level could see $BTC fall to $32,853 or even $26,820.
