We are still in a bull market,


Meanwhile, Bitcoin narrowly avoided an attack on the $ 40,000 support, an event that analyst TechDev says would be a reason for “become bearish”Should it form a weekly resistance.

“Weekly close below the 20-week SMA ($ 50,800) = worrying. Macro Lowest at Weekly Close ($ 40,000) = Bearish. Losing 2-week RSI low = bearish. Wait, relax, the market will reveal it. If the bullish phase of the cycle diverges substantially from history, I expect the eventual bearish phase to do the same. “
