Bitcoin price begins recovery after Binance’s announcement

Bitcoin price yielded 21% losses for holders over the past week following the collapse of FTX exchange and sister trading firm Alameda Research as investor confidence hit rock bottom. BTC crumbled under rising selling pressure from traders lining up to exit the risk asset after FTX’s bankruptcy filing. 

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao announced his plan to put together an “Industry Recovery Fund,” and offer a second chance to projects hit by a liquidity crisis. In response to the news of the announcement, prices of Bitcoin, Ethereum and other altcoins in the top 30 recovered 5% within an hour. 

Bitcoin price rallied from its 24-hour low of $15,906 to a high of $16,580. This move fueled bullish sentiment amongst BTC holders after the recent run of negative headlines. 

Bitcoin price could attempt further recovery as CZ unveils a plan to rescue crypto projects.

After its lowest weekly close in two years, Bitcoin price is ready for a recovery. Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla tweeted that

Bitcoin will make it, but it might be a long winter.

Bullish affirmation from the self-proclaimed Dogefather and crypto proponent Musk and a plan for recovery from Binance CEO CZ have lent a bullish start to the week before the New York trading session opens. 

RektCapital, crypto analyst and trader argues Bitcoin price is currently down 75% from its all-time high. In previous bear markets, the retracement has averaged  around 84.5%. Thus, by historical standards there isn’t much downside left to go, and Bitcoin price could therefore begin its steady climb in the short-term. 

Bitcoin price could retest $17,251 

Akash Girimath, technical analyst at FXStreet evaluated the BTC/USDT perpetual futures chart and argued that Bitcoin price could witness an 8% upswing and retest the inefficiency known as the Fair Value Gap (FVG) at $17,251.

If Bitcoin price manages to flip the hurdle at $17,593, it would invalidate the bearish bias and extend its gains from $17,251 to $19,500.
