Bitcoin Price Consolidation Incoming?
The narrative for BTC Price momentum in the next quarter would likely be set if and when the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) gives the green light for the Bitcoin ETF approval. The Commission is expected to make the announcement for spot ETF approvals before the tentative deadline of January 10, 2023. In this context, Dan McDermitt, a crypto analyst, predicted that BTC price would follow a consolidation pattern between the support at $40,000 and resistance at $44,000 going into the new year 2024.
As was seen around major macro events like the US Federal Reserve’s interest rate announcements, the top cryptocurrency could likely trade closer to the support range of $40,000 between January 6-10. The analyst also warned that altcoins could come into picture in this scenario, as consolidation in Bitcoin price pattern means other coins picking up. In the last few days, the Chainlink Price (LINK) and Litecoin Price (LTC) signs of volatility, in what could be early signs of an altcoin rally. Hence, investors and traders could likely take a cautious approach in the lead up to the January 10, 2024 deadline.
