Bitcoin’s Open Interest and Money Flow Suggests a Strong Pump is Imminent
Following an extended period of rangebound trading within the upper-$6,000 region, Bitcoin now appears to have entered yet another bout of consolidation around its current price of $6,100. Although it remains unclear as to whether or not Bitcoin’s current market structure is bullish or bearish, there are a few fundamental factors that may suggest a price pump is imminent. This comes as one analyst notes that there is one technical indicator that suggests Bitcoin is poised to see some near-term upside, but it must first surmount a key technical level. Bitcoin Consolidates as Analysts Watch Key Technical Formations At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down just under 2% at its current price of $6,160, which marks a slight decline from daily highs of $6,300 that were set yesterday when bulls attempted to invalidate the bearishness sparked by BTC’s plunge to lows of $6,100. Although bulls have not been able to post any sort of sustainable rebound in the time following Bitcoin’s decline from multi-day highs of $6,900, analysts are now noting that BTC may have some underlying bullishness that ultimately allows it to climb higher. Teddy, a prominent cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter, spoke about this bullish undercurrent in a recent tweet, explaining that BTC’s cloud indicator is currently green, suggesting that the crypto is positioned to see some near-term upside. “BTC: Green cloud suggests that the bias of the weekly trend is still bullish. However, closing below the 200ema will postpone any bullish price action – as the cloud will turn resistance,” he explained. #BITCOIN | $BTC Green cloud suggests that the bias of the weekly trend is still bullish () However, closing below the 200ema will postpone any bullish price action – as the cloud will turn resistance __ Free access to cloud?

Mac – another popular trader – explained that he believes these fundamental indicators may lead BTC to pump up towards $7,000 in what could be a fleeting movement. “Open interest up +13K $BTC after 27. March expiry. Thoughts: – Daily money flow looking good – Funding + prem still very negative. Bias: Weak dump ($5800s) into scam pump ($7000s) during this upcoming week,” he explained.
