The tweet also mentioned that this might be the last opportunity for investors to accumulate before BTC gears up to reach new highs, noting:

Additionally, Mags, a popular crypto analyst, pointed out a bullish pattern on BTC’s chart. As per the tweet, BTC’s price entered a descending wedge pattern on 29 September, which was a bullish signal.

What to expect from Bitcoin
The aforementioned charts looked favorable for BTC, as the coin also managed to push itself above the $27,000 mark. According to CoinMarketCap, at the time of writing, BTC was trading at $27,077.73 with a market capitalization of over $528 billion.
CryptoQuant’s data further revealed that BTC’s exchange reserve was also decreasing, meaning that it was not under selling pressure. Bitcoin’s Coinbase Premium and funding rates were also green, suggesting that buying sentiment was dominant in the market.

However, a few of the other metrics looked concerning for the coin. For instance, as per Coinglass, BTC’s Open Interest dropped while its price surged over the last few days.
