Bitcoin Price Analysis: Despite Recent Dip, Some Good News for The Bulls

Options Market Analysis

After bitcoin dipped to $42K on December 4th on Omicron fears, its price could not move higher than $52k over the last month. BTC is now trading at $47k. Short-dated ATM-implied volatility peaked at 94 and is currently sitting at 66.

Calls for a $50K strike price have the highest open interest for 2,3 & January 7th expiries. Lots of calls were sold for these expiries over the last few days. It seems that low demand in the spot market caused option traders not to be optimistic about an increase in price higher than $54K for the expires in the first week of January.

Technical Analysis

On the daily timeframe, bitcoin is completing the pullback to the broken trend line (yellow ones), both price and RSI. But we can not yet say that the correction is over. The price needs to form a higher high and break the blue trend line in the price chart and RSI. This resistance in RSI is the intersection of SM100 and baseline 50, and crossing it indicates bears are kicking out of the market.

On the lower timeframe, the price is mostly fluctuating in a rectangle (yellow box). In the short term, a safe spot could be the break of the RSI downtrend and MA21 as it happened on December 21st and led to an 11% increase.

On-Chain Analysis

Despite the neutral to negative sentiment of the futures market, the mid-term and long-term indicators in on-chain data are positive. Alongside the continuing hashrate recovery, the weekly-averaged number of active users is growing. This trend confirms that demand is still in the market, and any catalyst could initiate another rally.
