I’m a data analyst, and I know that if you ask the right question about the right data, you can gain some interesting insight that can help you make a decision to take the next step, so I analyze the previous market data for bitcoin to compare with the current market situation, so let’s get started.

Discuss the Bitcoin monthly chart from 2018 and 2022 in brief

1- Bitcoin monthly chart from (July to December) 2018

First, we focus on the monthly candle from July to December, in which we take some facts, such as: in July, when BTC moves up to 46% at a high of $8,496, the $8,496 level makes a resistance level, and the $5,774 June low makes a support level; the next three months’ candles move in this support and resistance area, as shown in the chart below.

The red line in the charts below shows the June low level, which is the new 2018 bear market low. The next month, if we count wick to wick, the July monthly candle moves positively by more than 46%, with a low of $6,076 and a high of $8,496.

August, September, and October In this three-month market, the Monthly Candle moves in the June support and July resistance areas with choppy very tied-closed movement, then begins the November market with the same tied-closed movement, but on November 14, when the market breaks the June support and makes another new low of the 2018 bear market. November’s monthly candle closed at 37% downside, which is a huge red candle after September 2011.

2- Bitcoin monthly chart from (July to December) 2022

Following the collapse of Luna in May 2022, bitcoin makes a new all-time low in June at the price of $17,592, and July was a good month for BTC price to gain more than 17% after the previous three months of decline.

From August to October, BTC was in a closed-range bond, which ranged from $25,000 to $18,000. June low is working as a support, and July high is working as a resistance.

On November 9, 2022, following the FTX saga, BTC broke the June support and set a new low of $15,479, so now everyone is panicking because BTC broke critical support and crypto is in trouble. The Twitter Crypto family claimed Bitcoin would fall to $10,000, implying extreme fear in the market.

So, where is the 2022 bear market bottom?

In our detailed discussion of the BTC 2018 and 2022 bear markets, we got some insight that bitcoin’s bottom is just one step away.

In 2018 BTC breaks crucial support in November and make a new low level then December was the bitcoin bottom which makes support from the June 2017 candle wick.

Now BTC is the same as the 2018 bear cycle, and I believe Bitcoin’s bottom is near in December, which is $14,000, because June 2019 gives support to this $14,000 level.

If you’re bearish in this market, it means you don’t know the market cycle when BTC is on top in November 2021, so that’s a time to be bearish, not at this time.

Glassnode Insight about 2018 and 2022 Bear Market

Gassnode compares the current cycle to all of the major bear markets in the past. He does this by measuring from the realized capital peak to the trough to get a sense of the relative outflows of capital:

  • 2010-11 saw a net capital outflow equivalent to 24% of the peak.
  • 2014-15 experienced the lowest, yet non-trivial capital outflow of 14%.
  • 2017-18 recorded a 16.5% decline in Realized Cap, the closest to the current cycle of 17.0%.

I’m neither bullish nor bearish at this time because I believe bitcoin’s bottom is at $14,000, and I believe the market is not recovering quickly from December to April, which is getting boring because I believe bitcoin will move in a tied-bound range in the coming month compared to the 2018 bear cycle.

If everyone is waiting for BTC at a $10,000 price, they never buy it when BTC is down at a $10,000 price; they think BTC is down again and they pick the $5,000 price… LOL
