Bitcoin’s upward price momentum, initiated in October, propelled the premier cryptocurrency to substantial gains of nearly $10,000 within the last month. However, on December 11, BTC experienced a significant correction, dropping 7% and erasing the preceding week’s progress. This correction led to $41,350, triggering double-digit declines in various altcoins.

Industry experts and analysts interpret this market fluctuation as an integral part of the ongoing price cycle. After a two-month bullish surge, a correction was anticipated. Will Clemente, a crypto analyst and co-founder of Reflexivity Research, noted that such corrections and market volatility serve to eliminate weak positions and cool the highly leveraged crypto markets.

BTC just ~doubled in 2 months with no pull backs, a correction is not that surprising.

Corrections shake out “weak hands” and leverage, allowing for a stronger foundation for eventual moves higher.

Bitcoin’s volatility is a feature, not a bug.

Chill with the leverage 🫡 https://t.co/BdvvS8KDZU

In an X (formerly Twitter) post, crypto trader Remen expressed the view that the recent market downturn might propel altcoins into another bullish phase. He suggested that Bitcoin’s return to an uptrend might require an extended period of consolidation, given that Bitcoin dominance has reached its peak.

I told you about flash dumps repeatedly

Now dump is completed

It will take a long period of chops for Bitcoin to resume uptrend

Bitcoin dominance topped

We now entering proper ALT SEASON

BE POSITIONED

Tears of regret don’t taste great

The sharp decline on December 11 liquidated over $400 million in crypto-leveraged positions, effectively clearing the market. Despite this correction, Bitcoin has since rebounded above $42,000. The cryptocurrency’s momentum, initiated in October, has been instrumental in achieving significant strides, with a 50% gain since the end of October.

#Bitcoin was in a 6 month long sideways range before breaking out, and it has recorded over a 50% growth since that breakout.

Whenever the price stays in such a tight range for an extended period, it often leads to a massive breakout or breakdown.

Hitesh.eth, another crypto analyst, highlighted the breakout of BTC’s price after nearly six months of sideways movement. On-chain data pointed to continuous buying by accounts holding over 1 BTC, indicating whale accumulation.

The influx of institutional interest, coupled with financial giants exploring Bitcoin exchange-traded funds, has created favorable conditions for BTC. This momentum is expected to persist leading up to the key Bitcoin reward halving event scheduled for April 2024.
