Bitcoin Extremely Overbought

Mohit Sorout, a founding partner at Bitazu Capital, shared the chart seen below on the day that Bitcoin moved past $19,000.

The chart shows BTC’s price action relative to a Pi Cycle Top Indicator on the site Look Into Bitcoin. The indicator is a formula that has accurately predicted medium-term BTC highs in the past, including the mid-2019 high, along with a series of intra-trend highs in 2016 and 2017.

Should history repeat, there’s a good chance that Bitcoin will correct back toward the lower bound of the indicator, then will return higher to break above the upper bound of the indicator.



Alex Fiskum, an associate at Alice Capital, shared a similarly bearish chart. The chart shows that Bitcoin’s current market sentiment and positioning looks extremely similar to the 2019 highs and the all-time highs that were seen in 2017.

Bitcoin’s Market Cap Hits All-Time High

Bitcoin’s Market Cap Hits All-Time High

According to publicly-available market data, bitcoin’s market capitalization has hit a new all-time high, eclipsing its highest mark ever of $328.89879 billion, set on December 16, 2017, per Coin Metrics.

Market capitalization is determined by an asset’s individual price, multiplied by its total supply. At the time of this writing, according to cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp, the bitcoin price reached $17,756 and, according to Bitcoin data aggregator Clark Moody, the supply has reached 18,546,019.15 BTC. With that total listed supply at that listed price, bitcoin has a market capitalization of $329.303116 billion.

Though the price of a single bitcoin measured in USD tends to garner the most mainstream media attention, the network’s market capitalization may be an even more critical measure of its value. It indicates the relative value of Bitcoin as a system, as opposed to the value of a single bitcoin.
