Bitcoin, at the time of penning down this article, was trading above $11.5k at $11.8k and is notably trading above 61.80% Fib Retracement level. Over the past three weeks since the beginning of the month, the price movement of BTC has been swaying above $11k with just intermittent rise and dip to $12.1k and $10.5k, respectively.
However, Bitcoin’s price has been consolidating above $11k from quite some time now, and this seems to be the new old in context to Bitcoin’s accumulative price movement below $10k and $9.5k in the previous month. Reminiscing the previous slogging below $10 and $9.5k, this appears to be the new accumulating zone until the next breakout. This accumulation around a leveled-up price area is nothing but the same choppy market session as the previous one.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but #bitcoin at 11,800 is the new boring
