Not just Wall Street: Quant trader explains why Bitcoin price is going up

에 게시 됨 by Cointele | 에 게시 됨

Sam Trabucco, a quantitative trader at Alameda Research, believes four general factors are pushing up the price of Bitcoin.

Whale clusters form when whales buy Bitcoin and do not immediately sell.

The accumulation of Bitcoin from whales possibly synergized with a profit-taking pullback in the altcoin market.

Based on various trends and data points, Trabucco said the four abovementioned factors likely contributed to the Bitcoin rally over the past months.

Atop these factors, Cointelegraph reported that the Bitcoin exchange reserves are also declining at a rapid rate.

Bitcoin exchange reserves drop when investors increasingly pull their funds out of exchanges.

According to Trabucco, Joe Biden's projected victory and the prospect of Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are both positive factors for Bitcoin.

The support for Bitcoin from various tech companies including PayPal, banks, politicians, high-net-worth investors and billionaires are all likely pushing up the BTC price, the trader argues.

In the near term, the roadblock for Bitcoin remains the $18,500 resistance area.

The medium-term prospect of Bitcoin remains bright, particularly considering that many macro and technical factors are buoying the market sentiment.
