Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro with Transaction view Immediately after BTC/USD, the price on Thursday was between 59,000 USD and 60,000 USD, fluctuating by 1,000 USD within a few minutes.

As the overall range of the currency pair became narrower and narrower, the discussion turned to a potential “short squeeze” entry to push its spot price to a new higher level.

“The question then is, what price range will serve as a support level?”

A similar incident occurred at the end of September, when Bitcoin suddenly soared to an almost unlimited week, reaching a maximum of $55,000.

“The release may be a bit early, because the bottom may not have reached yet, but when I check the next target that doesn’t seem to be so far away, I’m very excited!” He adventure Wednesday.

“If my reserve price is already or about $57,000, the target is more or less the same… $90.000 and a little bit.”

This week, PlanB reiterated the difference between the forecast and his stock-to-flow Bitcoin price model, but failed to achieve this, and the latter remained intact.

However, in the short term, some believe that the market is still not ready to support the new BTC price increase.

Traders and analysts Rekt Capital emphasized the lack of “fear” in market sentiment and remain sober about the possibility of a full-scale trend reversal.

“It seems that BTC investors’ fear of price is not enough to make this retracement just over,” he said warn.

“Before the biggest financial opportunity is extreme fear, not neutrality.”
