Bitcoin Weekly (3/6/2023)

Bitcoin Weekly - Edition 49

Bitcoin (BTC) fell over $1,000 last week after a rough start to the weekend thanks to the Silvergate Bank issue. The nearly 5% fall in price that resulted saw BTC shed some of this year's gains. After news broke of the latest crypto concern, Bitcoin immediately fell from $23,435 down to $22,359 and has been basically trading sideways ever since as the market continues to digest the industry's latest failure.

The California-based Silvergate Bank looks like it may suffer the same fate that has crippled so many companies in the crypto space, and that is over-collateralization. Silvergate, which operates primarily outside of crypto, appears to be in trouble in trying to pay its holders back given the grim figures in its latest financial report.

Technically, it was an ominous week with BTC as the largest crypto saw a "death cross" for the first time in its history. Basically, this means Bitcoin's 50-week simple moving average (SMA) has crossed under the 200-week SMA. What does this mean for BTC's price? Well, analysts are split but generally, this is looked at as a bearish sign and an indicator that a pullback is likely. If you listen to some on the more bearish side, we may be in line to see BTC fall to somewhere in the $16-$18K range.

While Bitcoin has never seen a death cross before stocks certainly have and have often moved somewhat positively after seeing such a technical mark. Since 1975, the S&P 500 has typically returned 9.1% on average while after seeing the death cross, which has occurred 19 times since then, the average return falls to 5.7%.

So is Bitcoin still a good investment? Well, those who have purchased BTC in the last six months have an average price of just around $21K, and given the current price they are sitting in profit. When you look at everyone who owns BTC their cost on average was $19.K putting them in profit as well.

The Crypto fear and greed index highlighted below is at 48 and down 2 points from last week, remaining in the "Neutral" range.
