We closed yesterday, 29 October, 2020, at a price of $13,437.88, with a daily high of $13,612.05 and a low of $12,980.06.
We’re 33.11% below bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (17 December 2017).
As of today, buying bitcoin has been profitable for…
98.3% of all days since 2013-04-28.
The volume traded yesterday was $56,499,499,598 – up from $35,867,318,895 the day before. That’s the highest daily trading volume since 8 October. High volume indicates that a significant price movement has stronger support and is more likely to be sustained.
Bitcoin’s market capitalisation as of yesterday was $248,995,322,466, up from $245,899,824,465 the day before. Let’s check in with Jeff Bezos again. He’s currently worth $187.8 billion. That means he could only afford to buy 75.42% of all bitcoin! Let’s all have a good laugh at Jeff’s misfortune.
Fear and Greed Index
Mid 70s, how we’ve missed thee. Sentiment is back up to 74 – up from 67 the day before. Sentiment should obviously be at 100 year round because bitcoin is the best, but if we’re being technical, extreme fear can indicate that investors are getting too worried and there’s an opportunity for buyers, while extreme greed could mean the market is due for a correction.
Global in/out of the money
For any address with a balance of tokens, ITB identifies the average price (cost) at which those tokens were purchased and compares it with the current price. If the current price is higher than average cost, address is ‘In the Money’. If the current price is lower than the average cost, the address is ‘Out of the Money’.

Bitcoin’s market dominance
Bitcoin’s market dominance stands at 63.74. Its lowest recorded dominance was 37.09 on 8 January, 2018.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The daily RSI is currently 68.90. Values of 70 or above indicate that an asset is becoming overbought and may be primed for a trend reversal or experience correction in price – an RSI reading of 30 or below indicates an oversold or undervalued condition.
Resistance and support
What they said yesterday…
First signs of de-coupling behaviour spotted between BTC and stocks.
Buying from an influx of new users provides price support preventing speculators from trading the correlation downwards.
