Popular on-chain analyst Willy Woo says that Bitcoin (BTC) may have more room to run after crossing the $30,000 level.
According to Woo, Bitcoin could shoot up more than 30% from its current value of $30,555 before the top digital asset becomes overbought.
“If this move completes, here’s a chart to give an idea of how much room we have to move before it’s fundamentally overheated.
By fundamentals, I mean what’s happening across the BTC network… miners, cost basis of latest investors, experienced hands selling, technicals, etc.”
According to Woo, Bitcoin could cross the $40,000 level in an extension of its current rally.
“i.e. ~$40,000 BTC.”
The analyst says that Bitcoin’s latest surge was likely driven by veteran traders accumulating BTC when the king crypto’s price dipped down to about $25,000 last week.
“This move was dominated by pros accumulating against a price decline.
Chart shows futures demand, usually the instrument of pros.
They aren’t lightening their bags just yet, this can change fast.
Spot demand (longer term) was insignificant.”
“My best picture is that pros are trading on longer-term weakness in DXY technical charts. BTC is a great vehicle to trade as a proxy due to liquidity and larger moves.”
Woo says that in simple terms, the Bitcoin market is experiencing a short squeeze.
“People wanting a simpler breakdown of what this chart means.
The red line represents building demand on calendar futures markets, quantified by basis (the cost of maintaining a long position).
Ultimately it’s a short squeeze from this market…”
A short squeeze happens when traders borrow an asset at a certain price in hopes of selling it for lower to pocket the difference, but they are forced to buy back the assets they borrowed as momentum moves against them, which triggers further rallies.Don't Miss a Beat – Subscribe to get email alerts delivered directly to your inbox
