Bitcoin’s Bid Liquidity Diminishes Amidst $65K Battle

Bitcoin ( BTC ) reached the $65,500 mark at the start of the trading day on Wall Street on April 15. This came after a weekend dip in BTC price. The market was relatively calm compared to the volatility seen over the weekend when the BTC/USD dropped to around $61,000 due to geopolitical instability in the Middle East. Bitcoin managed to avoid deeper losses that affected altcoins. Traders now face a challenging period as Bitcoin’s block subsidy halving is just days away, which typically leads to unsettled trading conditions. Some traders predict a pump before the halving followed by a dump to shake out weak hands.

Keith Alan, the co-founder of trading resource Material Indicators, pointed to changing exchange order book liquidity conditions and the need for bulls to attract bids closer to the current spot price to overcome overhead resistance above $70,000. CoinGlass data showed that Bitcoin was eating into bid liquidity at and below $66,000. Popular trader Skew emphasized the importance of preserving exponential moving averages (EMAs) on both 4-hour and daily timeframes and the need for Bitcoin’s relative strength index (RSI) to return above the central 50 level.

The approval of spot Bitcoin and Ether ( ETH ) exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in Hong Kong drew attention to their U.S. counterpart. Given the weekend’s drop in price, there were concerns that investors might have a negative impact on the first trading day of the week. ETF inflows have slowed down significantly compared to their peak in recent weeks. The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) only saw a modest outflow of approximately 1,600 BTC ($105 million) on that day. Some traders believe that GBTC flows have become less important as a metric.

Traders are cautiously navigating the market in anticipation of Bitcoin’s block subsidy halving and are closely monitoring geopolitical tensions and the impact of ETF flows. The goal is to establish the next phase for market direction by preserving key technical indicators and attracting bids closer to the current spot price.
