Why $19,600 could have been the bottom traders waited for

Carl Runefult, better known as the Moon, dropped a new video on the Bitcoin price trend in which the analyst identified $19,600 as the bottom. The Moon argues that it is likely $19,600 was the bottom as this is the price level that was the top for the 2017-18 bull run. 

Runefelt said, 

What if this [19,600] was the bottom? What if this is the bounce and the big bullish reversal?

Runefelt explored the possibility of Bitcoin price hitting bottom at $19,600, before a bullish trend reversal, setting the stage for a massive rally to $48,000.

Interestingly, the Bitcoin Fear and Greed Index, considered an indicator of market sentiment towards the asset, turned from Fear to Neutral today. The indicator has a scale of 1-100 that indicates fear, greed and whether the market is neutral on Bitcoin in general. 

Analysts identify signs of reversal in Bitcoin price trend

Cici Lu, the CEO of Venn Link Partners is of the opinion that Bitcoin market may have found a bottom. Lu told Bloomberg,

liquidation of leveraged positions seems to be over.

Joe DiPasquale, CEO of BitBull Capital is interested in Bitcoin’s monthly close and observed that BTC retested support levels between $19,000 and $20,000. DiPasquale was quoted as saying,

Successful bounces from that range could give bulls a solid foundation for a continued rally.
