The banks are at it again as several of the largest banks in the U.S. show signs of going extinct. First Republic Bank completely crashed and JP Morgan put in a bid to buy it up. PacWest Bank is next.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin has been strong, riding on the news of global financial and banking collapse. Even when Fed Chair, Jerome Powell, raised rates by 25BPS on May 3, Bitcoin still continued to go up. This makes you wonder whether there is some manipulation going on.
Let’s find out.
Bitcoin is not following normal technicals since the price is heavily manufactured and manipulated. However, the 50-day remained healthy support (green line) and the price bounced off of this indicator.
There need to be events (probably another bank crash) to push BTC upwards and help it break $31k. If we manage to break above this resistance, Bitcoin can easily rise to $36k.
It’s no surprise that Bitcoin is running into resistance here at the blue band as it has done five times previously in the past two cycles. This is a just but temporary roadblock. This indicator (the bands) called the last April 2021 top in real-time. The current price of the upper red band sets the next Bitcoin top at $106,000.
The big picture for Bitcoin is that it is still as bullish as ever. Just take a look at the Golden Ratio Multiplier. The golden 350 DMA cross has occurred, and we still have yet to see a return to the green or red lines which happens after every cross. Only patience will get us there!
