Other Instances of High Bitcoin Inflows to Exchanges By Miners
Further analyzing the chart provided in the tweet by Glassnode, it can be observed that high volume inflows were also observed on the following dates in 2019.
What then proceeded these dates, was that the value of Bitcoin fell drastically and opened a bear cycle in each instance.
Will Bitcoin Drop Lower?
Going by the last 4 instances that exchanges experienced high inflows of Bitcoin from miners, it can be concluded that Bitcoin might be in for a few rough days or weeks ahead. Back in mid-June, all bets were on Bitcoin losing the $9,300 support zone and kicking off a bear cycle that would see BTC retest the 200-day moving average.
At the time of the analysis, the 200-day MA provided adequate support for Bitcoin at around $8,100. Checking the charts once again, the 200-day moving average for Bitcoin now provides support around $8,300.
A similar analysis of Bitcoin was put forth by @MatiGreenspan via the following tweet.
Been wondering when #bitcoin might see its 200 DMA (blue line again) and was considering support around $8,000.
