Short-term resistance is expected to be around USD 38,000, and mid/long term resistance is expected to be around USD 42,000 from USD 4,200. Although the steep uptrend is somewhat weakened, investment overheating is expected. There is also a positive aspect in that the phenomenon has been alleviated,” he added. In addition, the report predicted, “In the case of Ethereum (ETH), around $1,155 is expected to be the first line of support, and short-term resistance is expected to be between $1,295 and $1,355.”
② Litecoin founder Charlie Lee said in a recent interview, “We expect the BTC bull market to peak at around $100,000. It could reach $200,000. This is 5-10 times higher than the previous bull market peak in 2017. This is an excellent target. “He said. “In the long run, I think bitcoin can reach the market capitalization of gold. Of course, it will take 5-10 years. It will take a long time to catch up with gold, but in the current situation where the dollar is overflowing, this will surely happen. “I explained.

② Cryptocurrency analyst Rakesh Upadhyay said, “If the bitcoin buyers can keep the 20th exponential moving average (EMA, $34,241), they can revisit the previous high of about $41,960. If the price exceeds the price, the BTC/USD pair can move towards $50,000.

Unlike the strength of large altcoins, including Ethereum, which recorded a reported price since the morning, the daily price of Bitcoin (see Figure 5) was technically not above the 5th and 10th moving average line, and the market price could not be maintained. The bearish trend continues. The adjustment period seems to be getting longer due to the recent rebound of the US dollar, but technically it has a large triangular convergence pattern, so the sideways trend in the form of period adjustment rather than a sharp decline due to a sharp rise would be better for further rise.

Indicator 1 in Figure 11 shows the spot trading volume of BTCUSD or BTCUSDT on 9 major exchanges (Binance, Bitfinex, PoloniX, Bitex, Coinbase, Bitstamp, Kraken, HitbittyC, Gemini), and number 2.

◇Bitcoin price short-term outlook through option Max Pain Price and option open contract <Neutral>
