Bitcoin has experienced its first daily “death cross” this year, with both its long-term and short-term moving averages crossing. The death cross is considered a bearish signal in technical analysis when a shorter-term moving average crosses below a longer-term moving average. However, timing exits based on this signal often leads to mixed results. The most commonly observed averages for this indicator are the 50-day and 200-day moving averages. Traders and investors may interpret the death cross as a sell signal or a sign of impending bearish market conditions. It’s worth noting that opinions on technical analysis vary, with some considering it voodoo magic and others using it as an important part of their trading strategies. Previous instances of the death cross have sometimes been followed by prolonged bear markets, but there have also been false signals where sell-side pressure was short-lived. The article suggests that the death cross should be measured against macroeconomic fundamentals and market sentiment.
