“$BTC would go sideways or bearish in the short-run I think. 1/ The number of #stablecoin user deposits on all exchanges is decreasing. I think buying pressure is too weak to break $20k at this moment.”

There are some bulls, though. The bull case seemingly hinges on two things: 1) consistent institutional buying pressure, and 2) the fact that the funding rates of Bitcoin futures markets have reset after the crash.Long-term uptrend intactWhat’s important is that even the short-term bears are long-term bulls. That’s to say, many expect a correction to only be a small part of a bigger bull market.As reported by CryptoSlate previously, on-chain trends show that there is a large amount of institutional accumulation of Bitcoin taking place. Lucas Nuzzi, an analyst at Coin Metrics, said on the matter:
“Multiple outlets have reported that Chinese miners haven’t been able to sell their BTC in Nov. because of a regulatory crackdown. As I’ve covered previously, there is no on-chain evidence of that. In fact, the opposite seems to be taking place: BTC held by Miners is down in Nov.”
The overall sentiment seems to be bullish as the U.S. dollar continues to fall against foreign currencies.
