Technical Analysis By @GrizzlyBTCLover Looking at the macro indices, we see that the US10Y index has actually reached its greatest level over the past year. Bitcoin has actually seen a major price correction whenever this index came at high levels(marked by a red horizontal line on the bottom of the following chart).
Likewise, the DXY index has actually disappointed any bearish indications up until now, which historically associates adversely with Bitcoin. BTC deals with the essential price location of $40-42K on the day-to-day chart, which has played a resistance and support role in the past year. Breaking down this level & will likely result in the intersection of fixed and dynamic support at$37K. The Head & Shoulders pattern, a bearish pattern on an uptrend, has encouraged lots of analysts that bitcoin will retest lower levels.
Futures & Spot Marker Analysis By @CryptoVizArt Over the last week, the 7-day moving average of Inflow Mean Value (inflowing deals ‘mean size)to Spot Exchanges revealed a selling pressure in the spot market while the cost action was attempting to break above the $53K resistance.

The stressing sign might be the high Futures Market’s open interest, mainly credited to Binance. Even though the marketplace was experiencing considerable volatility during the last number of weeks, the open interest in Binance has not seen any significant drop yet.

Therefore, a reasonable strategy for traders might be to lower their risk by keeping away from high leveraged positions till the futures market starts to experience a growth in open interest, as we saw in between May and July 2021.
