Bitcoin on the edge? Analyst explains what $71,500 weekly candle close means for BTC

Featured in:

Both Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum seem to be in the spotlight in the cryptocurrency market right now, with Bitcoin recently hitting just above a 24-hour high of $71,650, up 6.4% over the past 24 hours and almost 20% in the last week.

A prominent cryptocurrency analyst who has been following Bitcoin’s movements ever since, recently revealed insight into the latest asset trends, signaling a significant move forward for BTC.


Bitcoin Path Analysis: What’s Coming?

Crypto analyst Rekt Capital highlighted today on Platform X that a weekly candle close above around $71,500 could potentially initiate a breakout from the current “reaccumulation range.”

However, analysts revealed that history suggests that Bitcoin may need to consolidate in this range for the next few weeks to better align with the historical halving cycles that have previously influenced its price trajectory.

This extended period of consolidation, as the analyst emphasized, may have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s long-term growth. In particular, it could aid the cryptocurrency “resync” with previous cycles, potentially leading to a longer and more sustained bull market, as opposed to a shorter, more accelerated cycle that peaks earlier. Rekt Capital noted:

After all, the current cycle acceleration is still around 190 days (which is an improvement over the 260-day acceleration set in mid-March when BTC set novel all-time highs)

The analyst noted that although both scenarios are hopeful, the preference between a shorter and typically longer bull market remains a matter of market speculation. Currently, the debate is whether Bitcoin can continue to buck historical trends with a break above the $71,500 range.

Parabolic growth ahead of Bitcoin

Meanwhile, another analyst, TechDev, recently provided insight into Bitcoin’s potential future trajectory, drawing parallels between current market actions and the 2017 bull run.

Bitcoin has seen significant growth during this time, surging 1,200% on its way to its previous high of $20,000. TechDev analysis suggests that Bitcoin could be poised for another parabolic rally, potentially reaching as high as $100,000, especially given the longer period of consolidation in the current market cycle compared to 2017.

Supporting this point of view, RektCapital suggested that even a price of $72,000 will seem modest in the coming months if Bitcoin continues on its projected path.

It is worth noting that the Bitcoin price rally seen so far is driven by a mix of optimism and expectations surrounding the potential approval of spot Ethereum ETFs and growing inflows into spot Bitcoin ETFs.

Data from Farside indicates that spot Bitcoin ETFs saw their largest inflows in two months, with the U.S. fund category collectively achieving net positive flows of $948 million from May 13-17.

Notably, approximately 89% of these inflows occurred in the last three trading days of the week, following a lower-than-expected Consumer Price Index (CPI) report.
