Bitcoin (BTC) Price Analysis [Update]: When Will the Crypto Market Bleeding Stop?
The current price of Bitcoin is $3702, with roughly 6.3 billion in 24 hour volume. Bitcoin has dipped 20% further since our last update. The total market cap of crypto has shed nearly 90 billion USD in roughly 12 days, resulting in a 43% loss to the total market.
As of right now, we are still holding our low leverage shorts in order to achieve neutrality in terms of crypto exposure. This will allow us to maintain our buying power as crypto stabilizes or moves lower.
Our goal now is to maintain as much of our capital as possible so that we can implement a dollar cost averaging strategy. Dollar Cost Averaging is achieved by simply formulating a plan to use predetermined percentages of one’s capital to buy at select prices.
Our team will be utilizing this strategy because it is a more risk averse system for ‘catching the bottom’. We will release a more detailed DCA strategy this week.
On lower time frames, we see an opportunity for $BTC to experience a mini rally from here to the $4300-4500 levels, but will wait for more consolidation before reducing our short exposure. (See Chart Below)
