Analyst Notes: According to cryptocurrency analyst Michael Van de Poppe, Bitcoin is currently undergoing a correction, and this correction is also affecting other altcoins in the market.  “It’s a standard pattern prior to the FOMC, I suspect we’ll see the bounce happening in the coming 24 hours and continue from there. Most eyes are going to be focused on Ethereum network as a rotation, though.”

According to pseudonymous analyst Altcoin Sherpa, there is a possibility that Bitcoin may experience further downward movement after its sudden retracement. While Altcoin Sherpa believes that the pullback is not yet complete, he asserts that Bitcoin still appears bullish when examined on a higher time frame.

“This could be the ‘test dump’ and price could certainly make another leg down. Best to have some bids lower than you think. The market is still very bullish, not expecting a breakdown (yet)… 

In terms of the short-term outlook, the analyst predicts that the price will likely gradually decline on low time frames, with more information to come soon. However, Altcoin Sherpa emphasizes that this minor setback should be viewed in the context of the overall movement of Bitcoin, which is relatively insignificant.

“If that happens, then we’re still not dead, but we just cool for one month or so. Kind of expected something like this. Usually, it goes strong move –> one-ish month of cooling –> next leg up. If we dump, then we consolidate, then pump in January in my opinion. Stay safe.”

According to Santiment, a crypto analytics firm the current market conditions have been characterized by heightened volatility. An interesting trend has emerged where Bitcoin is experiencing a slight increase in movement back to exchanges, indicating a state of uncertainty among traders. On the other hand, the presence of Tether, a stablecoin, on exchanges has shown a positive development for bullish traders. Notably, there has been a 6.9% increase in the amount of USDT (USD-pegged cryptocurrency) on exchanges compared to the previous six months.
