Bitcoin traders: $25,000 “in sight”
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView show that BTC/USD briefly hit $24,498 overnight on Bitstamp.

Although the move was short-lived, it was the pair’s third attempt in recent days to take on more than $23,400 in sell-side liquidity.

In every case, the bulls showed no momentum to regain new support levels. At the time of writing, the status quo remained the same, with bitcoin trading slightly below liquidity at $23,250.

Crypto Tony additionally expects further moves in altcoins, with the overall crypto market cap set to retest resistance above the $1 trillion mark

“We are still looking for a decent move in the next few weeks, but be wary when we start to tap the $1.2 – $1.33 trillion market cap resistance level. This is an important forum and I expect strong resistance here,” he said.

But like everyone else, Crypto Tony has long been cautious, opening the door to a new macro low in the Bitcoin altcoin at some point in 2023

That includes fellow crypto commentator Il Capo, who avoided technical analysis in an update that day, saying that this BTC remains “small and strong”.

“Interesting week ahead,” he added.

Best January in a decade?
