Bitcoin unclear before Wall Street opens

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD hit $25,250 on Bitstamp.

A firm rejection of the hourly timeframes then saw the pair return below $24,750 and maintained a range throughout the weekend.

As Wall Street went on vacation on Feb. 20, Bitcoin faced three days of “off-hours” with less liquidity and a higher risk of volatile ups and downs.

These have materialized to some degree, with efforts to surpass last week’s highs short-lived, leading to liquidation from both long and short traders, data from Coinglass confirms.

Monitoring resource material indicators continued to track the source of flash volatility, which emerged in the form of whale traders on exchanges attempting to move the market with bulk bid-and-ask liquidity.

Fellow trader Crypto Tony was also cautious on the potential for clearing resistance.

“We’re grinding $25,000 again here but the question remains whether we stay above this resistance zone or deviate and come back down,” is part of the Twitter commentary of the day specified.

He relied on market conditions from mid-2021, the year that BTC/USD hit a “double top” all-time high in April and November respectively.

“$25,000 BTC is very similar to $31,000 in July 2021,” he said argued.

Venturefounder warned that macroeconomic events could cause Bitcoin and crypto more generally to weaken – part of a complex set of predictions from crypto sources for the year ahead.
