US stocks may be off to a rocky start to a big week of earnings, but bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are yet to show signs of calm.
fell over the weekend, at one point reaching $ 51,907 – down about 20% from a recent peak of $ 64,829 in February. The standard cryptocurrency rallied some points on Sunday night and was trading at $ 56,341 early Monday.
Some are seeing the retreat as a pause, including Goldman Sachs previously
hedge fund manager Raoul Pal. The crypto investor said in a tweet that he has always felt “relieved” after the massive liquidation of long-term liabilities used on the cryptocurrency, adding that it “cleans the market”.
In ours call of the day, Matt Maley, chief market strategist for Miller Tabak & Co. said investors could not draw any conclusions from the weekend action, but this week’s normal trading hours are crucial.
“We said it was important for the short-term bull case that bitcoin holds $ 60 on average.weekend. That hasn’t happened and now it’s trading lower so that’s not good either, ”he said.
However, Maley notes that weekend trading is “very thin” and has not historically been a great indicator of how bitcoin will trade next week. He added that the catalyst for much of the decline appears to be “very vague conversation” about a US bitcoin crackdown.
He acknowledged that the long-term fundamental argument surrounding bitcoin gives investors “virtually no insight” as to how the asset will trade in the short term at any given moment.
Therefore, two key technical levels need to be closely watched by investors, he said, including Thursday’s closing high of $ 63,400. Maley noted: “Any meaningful close above that level would be very optimistic. Left is the end of March low for cryptocurrencies of $ 52,000. Any significant close below that would “raise a major warning flag of the short-term potential” for bitcoin.
