BTC Price Pulls Back This Week
This week marks the first week in over a month we have seen a pullback in the market (~2% in the price of Bitcoin).
The last few weeks have been full of news and rumors about the upcoming Spot Bitcoin ETF approvals including the recent Ethereum ETF application made by Blackrock and of course all the news around the recent guilty verdict for Sam Bankman-Fried.
Comparatively, this week has been quiet with not much news to continue to pump the market. With a steady increase in both the price of Bitcoin, ETH, and the overall market for the last month, a pullback is to be expected.
While the market is consolidating, I thought it would be a good time to talk about the Bitcoin Rainbow Chart. For those new to the crypto market, it's a fun and simplified method to gauge the "buying" or "selling" zones for Bitcoin.
The Bitcoin Rainbow Chart
The Bitcoin Rainbow Chart (above) is a graphical representation of Bitcoin's price movements in a multi-colored band pattern, providing a long-term view of Bitcoin's price performance on a logarithmic scale and offering suggested buying and selling zones.
The concept behind the chart is to offer a fun and simplified way of looking at Bitcoin's historical price changes, making it more accessible to a broad audience. It is not intended to be a forecasting tool.
The colors in the chart range from red to violet, with each color representing a different market status:
- Red zone: Often represents a "bubble" territory where prices are extremely high.
- Orange to yellow zones: Indicate decreasing levels of overvaluation.
- Green zone: Generally seen as a fair or average valuation range.
- Blue to violet zones: Indicate undervaluation or "buy" zones.
According to the Bitcoin Rainbow Chart, we are still in the "Buy" zone - And I would wholeheartedly agree.
While the efficacy of the Rainbow Chart is debatable, it's important to remember it is not intended to be a technical indicator or financial forecasting tool, simply a slightly persuasive illustrative guide, and should not be used as the sole basis of analysis when deciding to buy or sell Bitcoin.
