Bitcoin (BTC) Price Soars Amid Whale Accumulation
Bitcoin price recovered in correlation to the U.S. stock market on Thursday, hours after the higher-than-expected CPI data release. While the CPI for September comes in lower than July and August, the core CPI rises to a 40-year high.
Interestingly, a Bitcoin whale entered long positions on the Binance and Bitmex futures exchanges as the BTC price fell to $18.3k. The move is expected to have come as a result of the U.S. Energy Information Administration reporting a significant increase in crude oil inventories.
The broader crypto market rebounded due to gains in the Bitcoin (BTC) price. However, it is not a spot purchase that could have strengthened Bitcoin bulls. Nevertheless, the Bitcoin whale purchase is enough to bring an additional rebound in the short term until profit in futures markets.
Meanwhile, indicators such as taker/buyer sell ratio, supply in loss, and adjusted SOPR suggest time enter long-position. However, traders must pay attention to open interest (OI) and derivatives reserve and netflow to confirm their entry.
Has the Bitcoin Bottomed Out?
Bitcoin price has now recovered many times from the $18.3k level, suggesting a bottom around $18,500. Whales took another opportunity to buy Bitcoin (BTC) at lower levels to bring a rally. Also, users can track whales moving large amounts of BTC during capitulation events using the Bitcoin Exchange Inflow Mean indicator.
However, the BTC price is still below the psychological level of $20,000. Until the price moves above the level to confirm a bullish movement, the Bitcoin price is under pressure.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin price is trading at $19,608, up 3% in the last 24 hours. The BTC price still struggles to surpass $20k, reversing from the strong resistance level.
