Recommended Posts

A bullish pennant breakout is currently being tested with bitcoin; and a golden cross – 50-/200-day SMA crossover has been formed as a SEC decision on ETF bitcoin products awaits

We have been optimistic on bitcoin over the past few weeks due to a cluster of positive fundamental drivers. The main driver is the growing ‘matter of when not if’ decision on spot bitcoin ETF product with a raft of heavyweight names, including BlackRock and Fidelity, waiting for the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to give them the green light.

There are currently nine spot bitcoin ETF applications sitting on the SEC’s desk, and the regulator may have to grant all of them a green light at the same time, to prevent any one firm from getting a first mover’s advantage.

Bitcoin technical analysis

The technical outlook for bitcoin looks positive with two bullish indicators seen on the charts. The recent surge higher has seen a bullish pennant pattern appear, with BTC currently trying to break higher. If a traditional pattern has been made, the October 23rd, $5k candle would be added to the breakout, giving a target price of around $40k.

The chart also shows a 50-/200-day bullish crossover (Golden Cross), another potential driver of higher prices. The crossover is seen by some technical analysts as a trigger for higher prices due to the potential for a bullish trend continuation. As long as bitcoin stays above $32,832 in the short term, the move higher should continue. A confirmed sell-off would eye a final target at $30k.

Oh great! My next anticipation for bitcoin price is $45k before the move down. Not only are we waiting for the ETF approval, there's also an halving around the corner.  Hence the positivity of the market.

Best thing we need to do is to keep a keen eye on the price movement. Got my smart trend to catch up with the next move

Indepently of coming price targets for Bitcoin, Gold and Silver. Bitcoin remains the hardest asset in the world with only 21 million bitcoins in circulation. The principle of Supply and Demand is very valid regarding Bitcoin. The supply is fixed and the demand is growing by the day.

In my opinion, this is an exciting development for Bitcoin investors. The contrasting YOY change in M2 compared to the YOY change in Bitcoin price as analyze on the Bitget platform suggests that the next bull cycle might be around the corner!

That's a good move but I'd be sticking to shark fin as well as Smart portfolio bot product.

    • Allow me to unveil the revolutionary Lifeform project – a groundbreaking development in the realm of virtual identities and avatars for the web3 world.   At its core lies a mind-bogglingly innovative concept. They've developed a state-of-the-art editor that empowers users to create hyper-realistic 3D virtual human avatars, which can serve as digital identities across the metaverse and web3 applications. Brace yourself for a staggering number – over 10 billion possible combinations of facial features and body details, all powered by the cutting-edge Unreal Engine 5, the very same technology behind blockbuster movies and top-tier video games. Impressive, isn't it? But here's the real kicker – these avatars aren't merely for virtual worlds. With Lifeform's DID solution, you can actually utilize your custom avatar as a login method and verified identity for any decentralized app or metaverse platform. It's an NFT-based digital ID that seamlessly grants you access to the entire web3 ecosystem. Remarkably, as early as March 2023, Lifeform had already become the most widely used dApp on the BNB Chain, boasting over 3 million monthly active users. This rapid adoption is a testament to the virtual identity concept's meteoric rise. On top of that, their AI analyzes user activity across blockchains, providing personalized service recommendations based on your crypto asset management strategies. It's a sleek, all-in-one web3 identity platform like no other. And the surprises don't end there. These avatars aren't limited to the metaverse; you can beam your virtual self into Zoom calls, Google Meet, online conferences – you name it. Your avatar mimics your movements and expressions in real-time, courtesy of their cutting-edge plugin. It's like being a real-life hologram! Lifeform is single-handedly bridging the gap between our physical and digital identities in an incredibly accessible manner. They are undoubtedly the key to onboarding the next billion users into the web3 space. It's a genius concept, if you ask me. You can check out it's token $LIFEFORM on the Bitget exchange as it recently got listed.
