Bear market OVER? THIS indicator says YES!

Overview

  • Market Bottom Indicator.
  • Bitcoin: resting after a rally.
  • Did Tesla sell their Bitcoin?!
  • Polygon’s important update. 

Good morning Banter Fam,

Could the bear market be over?

Take it with a grain of salt, but one analyst recently discovered an indicator that represents a big fat YES! Of course, all indicators are just a record of the past, but it permits the slightest hopium.

The recent Tweet by Jason Goepfert notes that the S&P500’s volume action indicates the market MAY have reached a bottom. Although he notes “This doesn’t preclude short-term losses. I can’t predict the future.”

Interesting indeed. Is the indicator telling the truth?? Fingers crossed.

Market update 🌍

BTC/USD

Bitcoin and the broader crypto markets appear to be resting after nearly a week of bullish price action. BTC hit a high of 24,280 before creating an inverted hammer candlestick pattern on the daily chart, representing a rejection of price. BTC will likely return to the $21.7k area to test it as support in the coming days. The support line matches up nicely with the downtrend line (Red). A rejection of that area will help reaffirm the continuation of the current uptrend.

At the protocol level

Polygon introduces zkEVM. The upgrade inherits the security of Ethereum and increases throughput and reduces fees. Feels like some investors were front-running the major news update in the past couple of weeks. Be prepared for potential fishy price action. 

zkSync 2.0. Matter Labs, the firm behind zkSync, announces the mainnet release in 100 days, launching the first EVM-compatible zkRollup. Wait, false statement! It looks like Polygon beat them to the punch! 

sUSD bridge is now live. Synthetix introduces an Ethereum to Optimism bridge for the most widely used stablecoin on Optimism, sUSD.

  • Binance NFT launches “Mystery by Franck Muller” Mystery Box Collection.

Banter’s take

ONE indicator won’t forecast the future, but it’s alright to hope a little; just don’t put your house up for sale just yet. The crypto ship continues to rock in the hurricane level five macroeconomic headwinds, and one whale has even sold 46,000 BTC in the past few days. Heck, even Tesla sold their share of BTC.

Although, watching indicators flip bullish is the type of activity we love to see! And it could be a promising start to a turnaround.
