According to Rekt Capital,

“Both saw BTC consolidate inside two Bull Market EMAs (i.e., green 21-week & blue 50-week EMA). If BTC is to repeat history, a capitulation event could take place where BTC briefly deviates below the blue 50 EMA.”

If the price doesn’t break again over $46,000, the market could also be in for a protracted bear market. BTC could retrace to the low $30,000 area.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the United States postponed its determination on NYDIG’s spot bitcoin exchange-traded fund by 60 days on Tuesday (ETF). The delay led to a unfavorable sentiment within the crypto markets, with a number of tokens experiencing a fast sell-off following the announcement.
