Bitcoin (BTC) seems to be doing well, trying to leave behind the uncertainty that came from the newfound regulatory scrutiny of the crypto sector. Indeed, the uncertainty appeared to invalidate 2023 gains, with the asset facing mounting threats of a $20,000 retest.
However, the flagship crypto is aiming to stay firmly above $25,000, a position that will continue to be the center of attention leading up to the upcoming week of February 20-27. Based on historical data and the asset’s recent price movements, investors can expect some good luck for the asset in the coming days.
Specifically, historical data shared by Bitcoin analyst by Twitter pseudonym Equity moneyL indicates that Bitcoin has likely formed a foundation for the next move up. According to the analysis, Bitcoin has historically recovered after undergoing a capitulation phase.
The capitulation has taken place after recording a spike in the price. Between the two phases, Bitcoin has experienced ups and downs in its price trajectory. Along this line, the 2022 bear market formed the last Bitcoin capitulation level and 2023 gains point to a possible rally.
Based on Equity moneyL analysis, a popular Bitcoin commentator under the pseudonym Bitcoin archive on Twitter pointed out that the price movement of the first cryptocurrency in 2023 replicates the trajectory of 2019. Notably after forming a neckline in early 2019, the position formed the basis that culminated in Bitcoin’s rally into the 2021 bull market.
