As many analysts predicted, Bitcoin was cleanly rejected in the low-$11,000s on Wednesday due to a cluster of resistance in that region. $11,000 is a price point that BTC bounced off multiple times during last month’s consolidation.

When the green line is at high levels, it suggests that most people are in profit, increasing the risk they sell. When the red line is high, it may suggest that capitulation has taken place, making ita potential buyer’s market.
The MPL, as per the chart from WhaleMap, just formed a bullish cross with the moving losses crossing above the moving profits:
“So when the red lines goes above the green line it means we entered bullish territory because at that point there are more people selling at a loss than for profit –> lots of rekt people. This is how bottoms form. The higher the red line, the better.”
