Bitcoin remains near $20.6K, maintaining positive momentum from the previous US session. Yesterday we saw an aggressive bearish attempt to trigger a bitcoin sell-off, pushing the rate down 2% in less than an hour. Still, in the area near $20.3K, the buying has outweighed, and we see systematic intraday buying going forward.
The intraday dynamics of Bitcoin’s price point to a neat set of long positions and buying on declines. This does not promise a rally in crypto anytime soon, but it does indicate a growing interest in long-term investments in the sector. In a year since the BTCUSD price peaked near 69K, the market has gone through two stages of collapse and has been in a long consolidation since June, reinforcing confidence that the bottom is behind us.
Bitcoin posted moderate gains in October (+4.1%, to $20,400) but was worse than the S&P 500 (+8%). November is considered a successful month for BTC, adding 7 out of 11 last times. The average growth in the previous 11 Novembers has been 24%, while the average decline has been 17%. In the first case, BTC could end November around $25,300, renewing August’s highs. In the second, it could end November around $16,900, continuing the year’s lows.
Dogecoin has returned to growth, adding 16% since the start of the day on Monday. Like BTC, DOGE bottomed in June and traded in a deafening sidewall until last week. Its surge of 140% in seven days has formed a promising bullish picture. Is it possible that it will become a leader in the entire crypto market? Why not.
