Is Bitcoin Price Headed for $90,000? Shift in Market Sentiment as Whales Circle

On Monday, the BTC experienced a slight decline of 0.28%, reflecting a lack of decisive movement from either buyers or sellers. Recently, the Bitcoin price fell below the $70,000 mark, leading to increased supply pressures on various altcoins, suggesting that the current consolidation phase may persist. Nonetheless, despite the tepid price movements, the purchasing activity of both whales and retail traders suggests that this may be the lull before a significant market rally.

On June 6th, the Bitcoin price reverted from the combined resistance of $71,750 and the upper trendline of the flag pattern. Since mid-March, this chart pattern has been leading a sideways trend within two parallel walking trendlines working as dynamic resistance and support.

The recent reversal plunged the BTC price by 3.65% to current trade at $69364, while the market cap recorded at $1.367 Trillion. With the overhead supply intact, the coin price could prolong the current consolidation trend and build sufficient momentum for a breakout.

In a recent analysis shared by Axel Adler Jr., a significant observation was made regarding the fluctuations in Bitcoin demand among retail investors. According to this verified author from Cryptoquant, there has been a noticeable downturn in the average monthly change in demand for bitcoins from retail investors making investments under $10K. The demand has declined by -17%, marking a considerable shift in investor behavior.

Further elaborating on historical data, Adler Jr. points out that a comparable previous downturn of -18% ultimately resulted in an uplift in Bitcoin’s valuation, escalating from 40K to 70K.

Moreover, another analyst Maartun highlighted that the Bitcoin whales have significantly increased their long positions on platforms like HTX Global and Bybit. This trend is visually supported by a CryptoQuant chart showing a sharp rise in the “Bitcoin: Taker Buy Sell Ratio” on Bybit, which correlates with an increase in Bitcoin’s price. This activity suggests that major investors are optimistic about Bitcoin’s future value.

This pattern where whales are accumulating actively while retailers are fleeing from the market often indicates a period of uncertainty which eventually leads to a major upswing.

Thus, a potential breakout from the flag pattern will signal the end of consolidation and extend the BTC price prediction target to $90000.
