Bitcoin’s highs and lows in the last 48 hours

In the run-up to the close of trading on 27 April, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) went on a rollercoaster ride, experiencing some dramatic swings.

As of this writing, BTC was hovering around $29,000, showing a nearly 2% increase in value. While the Relative Strength Index (RSI) suggested a slightly bullish trend, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) was below zero.

The position of the MACD indicated weak price movement despite the bullish flashing of the RSI.

Active addresses on different timeframes

According to data from Santiment, the surge in Bitcoin’s price to the $30,000 range was accompanied by a significant increase in trading volume.

On the other hand, the sudden price drop mirrored the decline of the S&P 500. The market may have been motivated by concerns about an impending recession, with the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, looming the following week.

Furthermore, the data revealed a decreasing 24-hour active address metric, indicating decreased interactions with the asset.

Despite the decrease in 24-hour active addresses, the 30-day version of the metric revealed a more optimistic outlook. The metric showed an upward trend in active addresses over the last 30 days.

Moreover, at its current level, the number of active addresses was higher than any other month in 2022 and parts of 2021.

The metric’s state suggested that despite the decline in daily active addresses, there was still an overall increase in active addresses over a more extended time frame.

Bitcoin Hodlers continue accumulation

Furthermore, if there was ever an indication that the recent price dip presented an accumulation opportunity, the Hodler metric provides it.

Recent data from Glassnode revealed an increase in the accumulation rate by BTC Hodlers. The chart displayed a consistent net position change on the upside, despite the price dip and apparent fluctuations, reflecting a sustained accumulation phase.

Despite recent market volatility, the metric suggested that Hodlers remained optimistic about Bitcoin’s long-term potential.
