What should market participants be looking at to determine the probability of what is coming next for bitcoin?
BTC’s monthly chart is telling an interesting story and yesterday’s monthly close was the second straight close on that timescale in green figures. As you can see on the chart below from TradingShot – in the history of bitcoin the asset’s never had back to back green monthly candles in a bear market.
Bitcoin bulls want to hold the $46,5k level in the interim but the price really won’t experience any technical damage until bears can push the price below $44k. If bears can take the price beneath $44k then the next level for bulls to hold is $40k
If bullish traders can finally breach the $50k level and get a significant close on an important time scale then $53k may be imminent in time.

As you can see on the chart below from readCrypto DOT’s broken the $29 level that was acting as overhead resistance and ran to new highs for August.
