3 signs Bitcoin price is forming a potential ‘macro bottom’

Bitcoin (BTC) could be in the process of bottoming after gaining 25%, based on several market signals. 

BTC’s price has rallied roughly 25% after dropping to around $17,500 on June 18. The upside retrace came after a 75% correction when measured from its November 2021 high of $69,000.

The recovery seems modest, however, and carries bearish continuation risks due to prevailing macroeconomic headwinds (rate hike, inflation, etc.) and the collapse of many high-profile crypto firms such as Three Arrows Capital, Terra and others.

But some widely-tracked indicators paint a different scenario, suggesting that Bitcoin’s downside prospects from current price levels are minimal. 

That big “oversold” bounce

The first sign of Bitcoin’s macro bottom comes from its weekly relative strength index (RSI).

Notably, BTC’s weekly RSI became “oversold” after dropping below 30 in the week of June 13. That is the first time the RSI has slipped into the oversold region since December 2018. Interestingly, Bitcoin had ended its bear market rally in the same month and rallied over 340% in the next six months to $14,000.

In another instance, Bitcoin’s weekly RSI dropped toward 30 (if not below) in the week beginning March 9. That also coincided with BTC’s price bottoming below $4,000 and thereafter rallying to $69,000 by November 2021, as shown below.

Bitcoin price has rebounded similarly since June 18, opening the door to potentially repeat its history of parabolic rallies after an “oversold” RSI signal.

Bitcoin NUPL jumps above zero

Another sign of a potential Bitcoin macro bottom comes from its net unrealized profit and loss (NUPL) indicator.

NUPL is the difference between market cap and realized cap divided by market cap. It is represented as a ratio, wherein a reading above zero means investors are in profit. The higher the number, the more investors are in profit.
