Bitcoin will drop to $10K before rally resumes – Asia Times

Despite being extremely volatile when compared to traditional asset classes, bitcoin (BTC) maintains a market equilibrium nature for the majority of the time, according to arecent report by cryptocurrency research firm Zubr.

The report emerged just a few days after bitcoin rallied beyond the $12,000 mark and its volatility finallyrecovered from a multi-year low, Cointelegraph reports.

Using data from CoinAPI, a cryptocurrency market data provider, Zubr found that bitcoin price swings are typically accompanied by nearly symmetrical movements on the opposite side, creating opportunities both on the positive and negative side.

According to Zubr: The majority of the time, Bitcoin will almost mimic the exact percentage increase with a percentage decrease on the very same day.

Typically, this mirror effect takes place within the same trading day, but Zubr also found that it can also occur over the course of longer time periods.

This means that over the short term, bitcoins recent rally to $12,000 could see a similar return to the $10,000 levels and a number of otherfactors point to the possibility of this pullback.

Developing a better awareness of market equilibrium and its relation to bitcoins price can be extremely insightful when incorporated into a day-trading strategy, especially considering that the volatility phenomenon discussed earlier has been constant since 2017.

Traders can ride the volatility and gain from both shorting and longing bitcoin on a daily basis. However, this is only one of the many things traders should have in mind.

According to Zubr: What the data is effectively indicating is lower risk opportunities are possible if one is to trust the historical events and deem such a swing intrinsic to bitcoins trading character. For example, should bitcoin increase by 10% and retreat back to its opening price, history indicates that there is an overwhelming chance (over 50%) that the price drops between 9-12% within the same day or following day.

While inconclusive on its own, this data point can be used when composing a strategy for intraday and momentum trading styles.

In the meantime, only time will tell if Bitcoin will maintain its current market equilibrium or continue higher above the $12K mark.
