- Selling by Bitcoin miners seems to have slowed down
- The reducing selling pressure could provide an opportunity for Bitcoin to break $50k
- Margin short positions have also capitulated pointing to a bullish future for Bitcoin
- Bitcoin could soon test $54k or even $60k in the days to follow
Selling by Bitcoin miners appears to have slowed down. This is according to an observation by the team at Bloqport that illustrated that Bitcoin miner’s net position change, has returned to neutral. Such a change will probably provide Bitcoin with the breathing room necessary to thrive past the $50k ceiling. The observation by Bloqport can be found in the following tweet.

Bitcoin Margin Shorts Capitulate
Furthermore, popular Bitfinex whale, @Joe007 earlier today identified that margin short sellers were closing their Bitcoin positions. As a result, the majority of traders are optimistic that Bitcoin’s value will start moving up and are thus in long positions. @Joe007’s observation can be found below alongside a chart demonstrating the distribution of Bitcoin long and short positions.
The last of margin shorts just capitulated. It is now pure unadulterated all-it all-longs play. Haven’t seen this in a long time. 4 years to be exact.
$54k and Even $60k Possible for Bitcoin
With respect to Bitcoin’s price action, the team at Crypterium analytics has forecasted that BTC breaking $50k will open the doors to $54k and possibly $60k as explained below.
…we will see high volatility, which will facilitate a breakout upward. In this case, the price can go up to $54,000 very quickly.
We expect to see such a level because there are a lot of stop-losses of short traders above $50,000. In case of a breakdown of this mark, it will provoke the closure of these orders, which will fuel further growth. Most likely, this time we can see huge liquidations in the market that will exceed a billion dollars.
In the future, this will provoke a further increase in price up to $60,000, but first, [BTC needs] to break through $50,000…
