Is The Crypto Bull Run Still Alive?
Has the bull run lost its momentum and are we headed into a bear market as some would suggest? Not so fast, while we have lost some momentum, the macro level charts such as the Bitcoin stock to flow model shows we still have more bull run to go.
In fact, PlanB provided an updated chart (below) which shows hard corrections in a bull market are common and currently we are on pace with the 2013 and 2017 bull runs. Here is what he tweeted with the chart “Nothing goes up in a straight line. Bitcoin has gone up 6 months in a row, until this month. This looks like the mid-way dip that we also saw in 2013 and 2017.”
As you can see above, we experienced major corrections in the previous bull markets and there are still more runs ahead for this bull market. Will there eventually be a top to this bull market? of course, but it is not at this juncture.
In my opinion this is another dip buying opportunity especially with the Bitcoin fear index at 37. The last time we were this low (38) we went from $45,000 to a new a new all time high of $61,000 in under 2 weeks.
