Bitcoin Price Hits a Month's High, Breaking Key Resistance

FXOpen

Yesterday's release of CPI figures suggests that inflation is slowing down and a rate cut could be on the horizon. This weakened the dollar and boosted the value of assets priced in dollars, including BTC/USD.

As a result, the price of Bitcoin hit a May high.

Meanwhile, there is sustained demand in the market driven by institutional participants investing in Bitcoin ETFs. According to media reports citing 13F filings:
→ JP Morgan invested $731,246 USD
→ Wells Fargo invested $141,817 USD in Grayscale's GBTC.
→ Similar activity is observed with other traditional banks like BNP Paribas and BNY Mellon, indicating a broader industry trend.

Technical analysis of the BTC/USD chart shows that since last November, the Bitcoin price has been forming an expanding fan (shown in blue lines) - similar to what Jesse Livermore referred to as an Accumulation Cylinder (bullish sign).

In addition:
→ The Bitcoin price broke above a two-curve formation (shown in green), which can be interpreted as a 2-month correction from the historical peak on March 14 within the upward trend described by the blue lines;
→ The Bitcoin price reached the fan's median line (shown as a thickened line).

Being around the median can be seen as a precursor to forming a short-term flat and BTC/USD price fluctuations with low intensity around the median.

However, if institutional investments do not weaken and the prospect of rate cuts becomes more real, bulls may attempt to push the Bitcoin price towards the H1 line, signalling a path towards a new historical peak around $100k per coin.
