Bears Lick Their Wounds, While Bitcoin Price Blasts Through $46,000

Bitcoin’s market is unpredictable as no one can predict the future price movements because of its extremely volatile market. On 18th May, Bitcoin’s price increased over 20%, which was a completely unexpected move that bitcoin’s market made. Despite what Janet Yellen, United States Treasury Secretary, said about crypto companies in the infrastructure bill that is considered currently in the U.S. Senate, the price of bitcoin increased.

Even though bitcoin is reaching new heights every day and is breaking all its previous all-time highs, the investors are concerned that the government could impose regulations, and those regulations will erase all the gains made currently. But at the same time, the derivatives indicators show no confidence in bears. In the proposal, it has been made mandatory that the protocol developers, miners, and validators report the crypto transactions of more than $10,000 to the Internal Revenue Service. The senators, namely Pat Toomey and Cynthia Lummis, are majorly focusing on imposing these requirements on crypto exchanges and brokers that act as intermediaries.

Holders should hold their digital assets, and the crypto market gets benefited from inflation., an analysis firm, has put the spotlight on investors who hold crypto coins for a year or more than what depicts their holding behaviour of cryptocurrencies. Along with holding behaviour, investors also become greedy at times. The Crypto Fear and Greed Index is a great indicator of bitcoin that tracks down its social media, searches, volatility and volume and said that it shifted from normal to moderate and then to greed.

Investors should note down that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics will soon launch the inflation report of July 2021 along with a market forecast that depicts a 0.5% rise. Only after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell failed to make people understand about a 5.4% rise in the consumer price index every year, the crypto market reacted to it in a positive manner.

Future Market and margin depict minimal activities from bitcoin bears.

Lack of confidence in Bitcoin bears can be clearly observed by having a view at the chart showing where Bitfinex margins were around 90% or more than that. It can be seen that there is no downturn. Margin traders have become popular for generation position contracts of around 20,000 bitcoins or more than that in a short period, which indicates that there is the participation of many arbitrage desks and whales.
