Bitcoin price nears 3-week high as trader says sub-7% CPI may see $19K


09 Jan 2023

Bets are increasing on a push higher for Bitcoin and on BTC price action defining the current range as its macro bottom. Bitcoin traded nearer $17,000 on Jan. 7 after the end of the year’s first trading week delivered a spike higher.BTC/USD 1-day candle chart (Bitstamp). Source: TradingView

All eyes on CPI

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView followed BTC/USD as it briefly passed the $17,000 mark the day prior. The pair had seen flash volatility on the back of fresh economic data from the United States, this nonetheless fading to leave the key level “unflipped” as resistance. Nonetheless, the brief uptick delivered Bitcoin’s highest price point since Dec. 20. Reacting, market participants continued to look to the Jan. 12 U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) print for December as a key potential catalyst for risk assets.

“Unemployment will rally in the coming months. Yields will fall of a cliff if CPI is low,” Michaël van de Poppe, founder and CEO of trading firm Eight, wrote in part of a summary tweet on Jan. 6.

“Relief rally is close.”

“Finally looks like BTC is ready to break out of the $16K - $17K base range it’s been stuck in the past several weeks. Initiate the squeeze,” hopeful trader Kaleo continued. Should the CPI report come in below 7% — meaning inflation is decreasing faster than expected — that could provide fuel for a trip to multi-month highs near $19,000, futures trader Satoshi Flipper added. 

Data reveals extent of on-chain losses

Zooming out, fellow trader and analyst Rekt Capital joined the growing consensus over the current narrow trading range on BTC/USD forming the next macro bottom zone.

“The current BTC price action will likely figure as an important cluster in the formation of the Bear Market bottom Accumulation Range,” he wrote.

In a further demonstration of the pain already being endured by hodlers, on-chain analytics firm Glassnode showed that Bitcoin has seen its second-largest realized cap drawdown. Realized cap describes the aggregate price at which the BTC supply last moved, and its decrease reflects realized losses from selling.

"The 2022-23 Bitcoin Bear Market has seen the Realized cap drawdown by -18.8%, the second largest in history, and eclipsed only by the pico-bottom of the 2011 bear," Checkmate, Glassnode's lead on-chain analyst, commented alongside a chart. “Investors have weathered a total of $88 Billion in Net Realized losses.”
