Bitcoin volatility post-CPI causes max pain

Oct 14 2022

2 years ago5 mins read

After a sharp drop yesterday post-CPI numbers, Bitcoin rallied up to \(19,950 for a 10% gain from the local bottom of \)18,200. This quick move left market participants surprised, and somewhat sidelined — causing max pain for both longs and shorts.

Today, however, DXY has also bounced and both equities and crypto appear to be correcting, with Bitcoin back around $19,400 at the time of writing.

BTC Technical Analysis

Bitcoin price is facing a clear rejection at around $20,000 on the daily time frame and is struggling to form a bullish structure. The futures open interest is also lower today compared to this week in general, as the move upward appears to have liquidated and/or trapped late shorts.

All of these factors indicate that a breakdown in terms of price may be violent and unlikely to reverse in a short period of time. Bulls will want to hold \(19,350 - \)19,250 in order to prevent any capitulation; otherwise, we could see a long squeeze taking the price down to $18,500.

ETH Technical Analysis

ETH price action has been weak over the last few days, and we saw it collapsing to as low as \(1,180 yesterday. While the second-largest cryptocurrency is trading back above \)1,300 now, it needs to hold this range in order to continue upward.

A breakdown from here may see ETH trading as low as \(1,285, with the major support still sitting at the \)1,050 level, as highlighted in previous updates.
