Fundamental Analysis on April 21, 2023: The European Parliament Passes a Law on Cryptocurrencies


On Thursday, MEPs voted 529 to 29 with 14 abstentions to approve Markets in Crypto-assets (MiCA), a law that creates a regulatory framework for the circulation of cryptocurrencies. On the one hand, regulation can help the wider adoption of cryptocurrencies. On the other hand, how much can end users like it if the law allows tracking transfers in cryptocurrencies and blocking suspicious transactions?

The real impact of the law will be judged later — whether it will control or protect users. In the meantime, their attention is more focused on the bearish dynamics of BTCUSD around the psychological level of USD 30k — we have been talking about this since last Wednesday.

The BTCUSD rate fell to the median line (1) of the ascending channel, which has been relevant since the beginning of the year, so the bitcoin quote can find support here. However, arguing about the position of the current price relative to the A-B triangle, which testified to the temporary balance of supply and demand, one can come to negative conclusions. After all, if we evaluate the rally on April 10-11 as an imbalance in favor of demand forces, then the latest price action indicates that the imbalance occurred in the wrong direction. And where the bulls did not succeed, the bears can.
