Bitcoin: September Price Analysis

  /  3 minutes read

In September, both traditional and crypto markets experienced significant losses as macroeconomic conditions remained unfavourable. The overall market capitalization of the assets has declined, showing the market’s risk aversion following a surge in inflation numbers and rising interest rates in both the US and the EU. However, BTC outperformed both the S&P500 and the NASDAQ in September, which had negative returns of 9.34% and 10.5%, respectively. ETH was the weakest performer in September after the long-awaited Merge proved to be a ‘buy the rumour, sell the news event.

BTC trading volumes have increased in recent months versus certain FIAT currencies. For example, the BTC-GBP pair increased 233% in September after the reserve currency plummeted to an all-time low of £1.03 against the USD earlier in the month.

Several currencies throughout the world have seen their value fall against the USD as a result of growing inflation and weak macroeconomic conditions. GBP, AUD, JPY, TRY, and EUR have all dropped in value vs USD by 8.15%, 5.58%, 5.99%, 9.76%, and 6.61%, respectively, over the last three months. In the same time frame, the price of Bitcoin has climbed by 3.75%.

Uncertainty over the economic outlook and the Fed’s ability to avoid a hard landing has weighed on BTC and the Index. However, the Index has avoided a relapse to the sub-20/100 level, which has provided BTC price support. To support a shift in attitude, the Index must continue to avoid falling below 20/100. Markets will be influenced later today by US nonfarm payrolls and Fed discussion. According to the FedWatch Tool, the likelihood of a 75-basis-point rate hike is 75.9%, up from 53.2% on September 29.

Bitcoin (BTC) was still trading above $20,000, roughly flat from the previous day, as the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization traded in a narrow range. BTC reached a high of $20,440 before falling back to current levels. Bitcoin dominance, a measure of BTC market cap compared to total cryptocurrency market cap, has risen to 41% following a 2022 low of 39% on September 10. The increase in BTC dominance reflects a shift in overall cryptocurrency investment to bitcoin. Let’s take a look at possible scenarios.

Bullish Case: Bitcoin (BTC) is still trading in the middle of a massive range on a daily time-frame chart, indicating that the coin is still accumulating momentum for a major move. If the price falls below $21,600.00, the resistance level of $24,200 may be tested in the coming days or weeks.

Bearish Case: The Friday jobs report is part of the macroeconomic narrative that has supported both traditional and digital asset valuations. The market appears to be in a “bad news = good news” loop. Increased job losses usually imply that the economy is in trouble and that inflation will decline. A better-than-expected jobs report may reinforce the perception that economic expansion should be moderated, putting negative pressure on bitcoin prices. If BTC breaks below the $18,600.00 price level then we might drop to the $16,500.00 price level.
