The pair retraced its entire run to one-month highs courtesy of the latest macroeconomic data and policy update from the United States.Amid ongoing concerns over the solvency of largest global exchange Binance, market sentiment showed what traders argued was a clear case of cold feet.The evidence, they suggested, simply did not stack up in bears’ favor.“The craziest rumours and FUD going around on literally everybody in the crypto exchange business,” Michaël van de Poppe, founder and CEO of trading firm Eight, tweeted on the day.A further post expanded on who those players are:“Apparently the consensus is that Tether, Binance, DCG are all going to fall. Potentially even Michael Saylor. Clear, got it.”Fellow trader and analyst Crypto Ed sounded equally skeptical, drawing attention to Bitcoin’s copycat comedown in line with U.S. equities the day prior.“Interesting to see everyone suddenly so bearish on BTC as if it's solely acting so weak. 

 

SPX is doing exactly the same, maybe even weaker,” he told followers, querying whether the “Binance fud” really had a role to play.BTC/USD vs. S&P 500 % change chart.

Popular trader Crypto Tony thus announced entry of “the next wave down for the bears,” amid ongoing predictions of a cycle low at $12,000 or under.“BTC all as expected ... if we consolidate for a while above 16900 I will open a long .... still patient for now,” fellow trader Elizy wrote in a fresh update.This article does not contain investment advice or recommendations.
