Bitcoin (BTCUSD) has been on a 1 month pull-back ever since it started the new Bull Cycle rally at the start of this year. We have compared the current Cycle to that of 2015-2017 numerous times and as the market fears (yet again) of a stronger correction/ major trend reversal, the Crypto Total Altcoin Market Cap (OTHERS)/ BTC ratio provides more insight.
This ratio (orange trend-line) has made a new Low just last week and has been on Lower Lows since January 2022, which was when Bitcoin closed below its 1W MA50 (blue trend-line) and kickstarted the aggressive part of the Bear Cycle.
In December 2015 the OTHERS/BTC ratio also reached its Lower Lows bottom, started in late September 2014 that was the aggressive part of that Bear Cycle. On both sequences, BTC was above the 1W MA50 but on a short-term pull-back. If the ratio starts rebounding aggressively, it would mean that BTC is right on track and most likely will follow 2016 by extending the long-term rally with the 1W MA50 as the Support.
Do you think this will be the case or this pull-back is the start of a deeper correction for BTC? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below!
