Bitcoin has maintained a sort of quasi-stability in the mid-$9,000s since Tuesday, leaving bulls patiently waiting for that march towards five-figures.
There’s stiff resistance around $9,900 whereas the closest support lies in the $9,300 – $9,350 range. Over the short-to-medium haul, the BTC price is trading inside a descending wedge, which is often deciphered as a bullish sign. The long-term prospect, however, doesn’t seem very encouraging at this juncture – unless, of course, it can break out above $10,000. There is also a notable increase in the number of Bitcoin whales since the May halving, which indicates that the overall market sentiment among the more influential traders and investors is largely on the positive side. Going into specifics, new data from blockchain analytics firm Glassnode has revealed that on May 1, 2020, 1,811 unique entities were holding at least 1,000 BTC. Since May 11, that number has increased to 1,840. Meanwhile, in other important news from the past 24 hours:

New ‘Fishiness Indicator’ Challenges Binance’s Derivative Volume

A new analytics metric gives traders a more definitive way to find out which exchanges are cooking their volume figures. The new ‘Fishiness Indicator’ is challenging the accuracy of Binance’s self-proclaimed 24-hour derivative trading volume. The indicator may prove to be quite useful to the cryptocurrency ecosystem as crypto derivatives fast become one of the most dynamic and influential arenas in the industry. There’s a catch, though. The Fishiness Indicator operates under the assumption that while volume can be faked, open interest can’t. In other words, it isn’t bullet-proof. Read the Full Report
