We begin, of course, with the live Bitcoin (BTC) price and the prices of the top 25 crypto.
Live Bitcoin (BTC) price and prices top 25 crypto rise in sharp rally

Experts and analysts think Bitcoin (BTC) price has seen bottom
With Bitcoin (BTC) closing the day above its 200-week moving average and 50-day moving average yesterday, momentum appears to be building for a further bull rally, according to analysts and experts.
Thus, analysts see that the bulls in the market are stronger. They see this in the ranges. Despite the fact that the top of the bandwidth proved several times to be too strong to break through, the price did not drop to the bottom of the bandwidth. They also see that there is room for further growth of the Bitcoin (BTC) price towards $27,000.
Experts concur with this opinion. We already analyzed many times that they believe the price will remain bullish in the long run, but now the first experts dare to mention that the bottom has been reached as far as they are concerned. Among them billionaire and CEO of FTX, Samuel Bankman-Fried. He foresees that the bottom has been reached and the BTC is now heading mainly cautiously upwards.
Warning: BTC bulls are not sleeping, are we seeing a long squeeze or fake-out?
With the market becoming more positive again, it is tempting to look at nice growth scenarios. Yet there are 2 signals that we should not overlook.
First, the current rally appears to be partly speculative. Indeed, analysts see confidence in a mild interest rate hike in the next Fed rate decision as a driver of prices. This means that a disappointing interest rate decision could actually have a greater impact and cause a sharp drop in prices.
In addition, large BTC whales appear to be making huge sales transactions. The largest wallet that is not linked to an exchange has already sold 46,000 BTC in various transactions. Analysts expect the whales to want to sell much more. This suggests that at the current short-term prices, they would rather cash in and buy in later at a lower price than hold on now and wait for further price increases. There are also several indicators that the short-term trend is still bearish.

Low timeframe trend is bullish, no doubt about it. High timeframe trend is still bearish and this is another lower high.

Bitcoin (BTC) price Elliott Wave analysis: these are the BTC key quotes in the short term
This raises the question of what we can expect from the Bitcoin (BTC) price in the near term and which quotes are important for the market.
As we can see in the Elliott Wave analysis below, it is important for the market to confirm a price above $23,000. If this happens there are opportunities for a price target of $25,000.00 and $27,000.00. A victory of the resistance at $27,100.- provides room to look towards $30,000.- again. In the analysis below we see a picture.
If the market cannot keep the price above $23,000.00 the eyes focus mainly on the 200-week moving average (around $22,600.00), the top of the consolidation zone of the last period (at $21,000.00) and the psychologically important limit of $20,000.00.
With that, despite the nice price increases in recent days, there still seems to be an uncertain market. Therefore, it pays to protect yourself from a price drop and go through the tips for making money in an uncertain crypto market again.
We will of course continue to report on all developments.
