Cryptocurrency Opinion & Analysis

Will Bitcoin Go the Way of a Commodity or an Equity?


I went back to my Outlook 2023 written in December 2022 where I begin with:

You Can’t Run with the Hare and Hunt with the Hounds.

This expression will ultimately summarize the upcoming year.

As the Year of the Tiger loses its roar, the Year of the Rabbit hops into view.

For 2023, one word and two expressions keep coming up:


Trying to fit a square peg into a round hole,

Looking for Inflation in All the Wrong Places

My readers know we have been buyers of dips in oil and gold.

And that got us wondering about Bitcoin.

The next to the last page of the Outlook, we call Bitcoin

With the outperformance versus the SPY in September, while currently slightly underperforming, what’s next for our adolescent?BTC/USD-Daily Chart

Here are some of the recent headlines about Cryptocurrencies, specifically Bitcoin.

Prince Filip of Serbia Bitcoin is an “open secure protocol akin to the internet”.

Ark Invest Research forecast $1.48 million bull case for Bitcoin

Deadline for the SEC to hear Grayscales’ appeal for a spot Bitcoin ETF

President of Madiera welcomes Bitcoin

Paul Tudor Jones “Bitcoin should “probably take on a larger percentage of your portfolio

We find the 2 most interesting headlines are those of Cathie Wood and PTJ.

Both bulls, one with a great track record and one with a horrific one.

So, could they both be wrong?

The chart of BTC/USD dissected:

  • Price sits on the 50-day moving average (blue line).
  • The Phase is Distribution.
  • The price is well under the July 6-month calendar range low.
  • In Leadership, it underperforms the SPY.
  • In Momentum, it is slightly below the 50-DMA for a teeny bearish divergence to price.

$26,500 is the support to hold to see higher levels. Ideally, a close over 28,000 sets up the bulls the best.

With three peak lows: January 2023, March 2023, and September 2023, Bitcoin is making higher lows.

However, until momentum improves and BTC/USD begins to outperform the SPY, we are more neutral than bullish or bearish.

We do like Friday the 13th’s action, so do not lose track.
