Despite the unsuccessful attempts by the price of bitcoin to restore support at $23,000, on the daily chart, moving averages formed a “golden cross” combination, a harbinger of a bull market.
In the image below, the 50-day MA (marked in red) crossed above the 200-day MA (in blue).

The last time the “golden cross” formed was in September 2021, two months before Bitcoin reached its all-time high.
Collaborating with CryptoQuant, analyst Venturefounder sees a pullback to $20,000 (200 daily MA) with a subsequent exit to the psychological level of $25,000 as a further development of events.
#Bitcoin goldencross just happened!
This potential correction could see #BTC retest $20k (#200DMA and key support), then in the bullish case, test $25k next.

CryptoQuant analysts see the golden cross as an addition to the signals of a number of other important indicators that indicate the beginning of the accumulation phase of coins in anticipation of the next halving.

Crypto trader and host of The Wolf Of All Streets podcast, Scott Melker, has set a target of $25,212 as his benchmark. A break of this milestone will neutralize any bearish theses, he added.
That’s the line for $BTC.
A break above would be the first higher high since $69,000 and would technically invalidate the bear thesis.

Earlier, Adam Farthing of B2C2 came to a similar conclusion.
Recall that Glassnode stated a transitional phase from a bear market to a bull market.
