Bitcoin price hits multi-year low at $15.6K, analysts expect further downside


BTC and altcoins collapse following news that Binance declined to purchase FTX. Analysts share their perspectives on what’s next for the market. 


Investor sentiment in the crypto market is floundering after Binance decided to nix its agreement with FTX to purchase the distressed cryptocurrency exchange. The events have sent Bitcoin to a new yearly low, while other altcoins have also taken a sharp downturn. 


Data from Cointelegraph shows Bitcoin declining to $15,698 amid the chaos caused by FTX’s potential insolvency and the failure of the Binance deal. Analysts are turning to technical charts to try and find the next price path.


Analyst expects downside continuation with brief support at $12K

Independent market analyst, CanteringClark said that the BTC price could possibly find a short-term bounce at $15,000. Citing an assortment of indicators, the analysts suggested that Bitcoin could eventually settle around the $12,000 level.

This is as clean of a continuation break as you are going to get, and this time we have a catalyst to really send it.

15k might provide brief support, but the next major area for price to settle seems to be around the 12k handle.

Cheap Bitcoin coming.

Will Bitcoin price drop below key multi-year moving averages?

Analyst Caleb Franzen explained that the estimated moving average (EMA) is an indicator utilized to gauge price over a certain period of time. According to Franzen, if Bitcoin price continues to fall, it would be the first time in its history that the 52-week and 104-week EMA’s crossed below the 156-week EMA.

#Bitcoin analysis using annual EMA's on weekly candles:

52-week EMA = 1 year
104-week EMA = 2 years
156-week EMA = 3 years

We've never seen the 52 or 104 EMA's cross below 156 EMA, but we're getting very close this cycle.

Is a new first coming for $BTC?

Citing the aSOPR on-chain metric, Glassnode analysis shows that spenders are selling at a 10% loss, something which has not happened since the June 2022 sell-off. 


The last 48hrs have seen a series of dramatic events unfold related to FTX and Binance exchanges

In response, we have seen #Bitcoin aSOPR drop to 0.9, signalling the average spender was realizing a 10% loss.

This is as severe as June sell-off, when prices first fell to $17.5k.

Analysts across the market were hopeful that Binance’s bid to acquire FTX would stop the bleeding of the current sell-off and now that the deal is nixed, investors are likely to amplify their risk-off stance.
