#bitcoin bull markets seem to start at difficulty bottoms. We saw difficulty bottoms (miner capitulation) in Dec 2011 ($4.6), May 2015 ($230) and Dec 2018 ($3691). Price continues to rise from these bottoms until ATH around 100x .. implying a continuing uptrend until $370K ATH.

The plot thickens; Sources in China say the Chinese government believed that @justinsuntron “promoting” the Warren Buffett lunch was a “provocative” act given current trade tensions. He has been told not to pursue the lunch. My source believes the lunch won’t happen at all.

Central Banks will struggle to find enough Gold to satisfy demand (even at $2,500 an Oz), so they will turn to #Bitcoin to fulfill their need for Hard Money. Will this be the catalyst that drives BTC to pomp’s $100k, 2021 target?

Long term 200 MWA [50 MMA] lining up with the logarithmic growth curve....

Back to the long term moving average, and then off to the races...

The above has the mania part of the bull run in 2021 [steeper rise]. This has the mania for 2022. My preference is for this second one...


$BTC weekly update: 2 weeks later and we've finally arrived at the outlined $9500 support. If this is a bull market pullback, this is where I'd expect it to bottom out. Good enough to take a chance. I've been big timeframe bearish since $11500, flipping neutral to bullish here.

COT report - still in risk reducing mode at the CME with open interest ticking down


Bitmex/CFTC one week on - outflows in BTC terms seem to have stabilized

BitMEX Perp's liquidity actually the best it's been for a month despite the reported CFTC investigation concerns

Joseph Young@iamjosephyoung

A couple of whales moving the price of bitcoin 6~10 percent within a span of minutes is not a good look and hurts many investors. I reckon the emergence of better regulated trading venues would help in the long term but in the short term, I don't see this being addressed.

$BTC During Phase II i.e steady uptrend of #Bitcoin's bull cycle, the blue band acts as support & minor corrections reverse from there. Price doesn't pull back that deep so often, but when it does... It's an exceptional #BTFD opportunity.

Alistair Milne@alistairmilne

A couple more reasons to bullieve: - above 'holy moly' logarithmic trendline (green) - 3-day 'golden cross' imminent (last time was Jan 2016) 

This is more likely someone trying to get their bids filled than someone actually trying to sell 4000 BTC like an amateur

Mr. Whale is back on Binance with 4k btc

Stage 1 of the bull market is completing, once we bottom stage 2 begins promising the long sustainable bull drive that takes us through all of 2020 (if BTC continues its personality). Stage 1 was trader driven dominance squeezing us up and driving fomo. Fomo complete, stage set.

To Peter's points, institutional investors are already coming in, I do not believe they are suckers by virtue of needing to understand risk management. The data I see is that old hands (via UTXO age) are distributing coins over time, the capital inrush is more than enough.
