According to data from Markets Pro and TradingView, The Action of Bitcoin Price Today saw a boost, circling $67,000 following the latest daily close. Despite remaining within a narrow range, bulls persisted in chipping away at nearby order book liquidity.

Material Indicators commented on the dynamic changes in liquidity placement, influencing overall price action and tightening the active trading range to roughly $62k – $68k.

An accompanying chart displayed trading behavior among various classes of Bitcoin whales. Notably, the $1-$10 million order category showed increased exposure through April, contrasting with other categories. This observation aligns with previous findings from research firm Santiment, indicating a sense of “FOMO” among wallets holding between 1,000 and 10,000 BTC ($66.7 million — $667 million).

Santiment highlighted the accumulation trend among key whale tiers, with holdings between 1K-10K BTC supporting the ongoing rise. This class of whales now owns more than a quarter of the BTC supply, approaching new record highs.

“This translates to an accumulation of 1.24% of the entire supply. The crowd is also showing a high degree of FOMO.”

Market Insights and Analysis

In its market updates, trading firm QCP Capital suggested a period of low volatility preceding potential significant market shifts. Dubbed the “New York Color” updates, QCP described a period of “unsettling quietness,” noting BTC’s position in the middle of the 60/73k range and decreasing front-end vols closer to 60%.

Reference was made to the recent Bitcoin halving and geopolitical tensions in the Middle East, which have since de-escalated. Analysts also noted the reset in Bitcoin funding rates and the gradual return of interest to the United States’ spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Despite a slower pace, demand from traditional finance (TradFi) continued, with BlackRock posting 70 consecutive days of inflows. QCP concluded by questioning whether the current calmness signaled the precursor to a bullish storm in the market.
