The first half of 2019 thus far has proven to be the perfect example of a market cycle flipping from bear to bull, complete with a disbelief rally that ended up being the real thing, taking the price of Bitcoin close to $10,000 – a significant number for the crypto that spent 2017 in the media limelight, only to suffer a catastrophic post-parabolic advance crash and retracement of over 80%. While Q1 was still firmly in the grasp of bears, once bulls saw their chance at the start of April there’s been no stopping the powerful rally since. The return to green candles has restored confidence amongst investors and the sentiment across the crypto market is the most bullish it’s been since the height of the crypto hype bubble.
In a new poll, that sentiment can clearly be observed as the overwhelming majority of respondents had a bullish outlook. Could this much bullish sentiment in the market help to push Bitcoin higher? Or should the bullishness be viewed as a powerful contrarian indicator that the near term “top” is in?
