The following is the analyst’s view of the current market, and the things to be aware of when 2021 starts and ends.

Strong support from US$52,000 to US$53,000

He pointed out that the price fluctuations in the lower time frame and the evidence of the slow downtrend in the higher time frame are the reasons for the increased fear of traders” The bull market may be over.”

Analysts said that once BTC breaks through the current range, “the most obvious support group is at around US$52,000 to US$53,000”, which is close to the point where prices plummeted during the May crash earlier this year.

Decentrader said,

“If we make a deeper correction, the strong support area is at $46,200 near the 200DMA and the lower support at $44,300. On the bright side, an important resistance level is at the round of $60,000.”

Bitcoin and Ethereum are “discounted” at these levels

Although the recent price trend of Bitcoin has discouraged many people, David Lifchitz, ExoAlpha’s managing partner and chief investment officer, stated, “When Bitcoin and Ethereum reached $54,000 and $3,900, respectively, they were already “discounted.” Who can get them at these levels.

According to Lifchitz, the price of Bitcoin continues to be hampered by the “Mt. Gox Liquidation Legend”, and he suggested that BTC investors may “be cautious until the distribution is expected sometime in the first quarter of 2021.”

Lifchitz also highlighted the spread and impact of COVID-19, a variant of Omicron, as a situation that requires close attention, because “a severe outbreak that led to a lockdown will definitely put pressure on the market in the first place.”

Lifchitz said that this may lead to another round of stimulus measures by the government, “This will increase global debt and weaken the exchange rate of currencies against gold and cryptocurrencies. At the same time, interesting money can be exchanged for immutable currencies such as Bitcoin.”

Livchitz said,

“So, after the initial decline caused by the panic, if we refer to what happened before, cryptocurrencies can take advantage of this result, even if it is still highly speculative. We will know in the next few weeks whether Santa Claus is this year Will come, or will he continue to be in lockdown due to COVID!”
