Analysts send mixed messages on Bitcoin Bull Trap retreat trap scenario
Bitcoin prices rose over the weekend, continuing the rise that began with the new year.
Bitcoin has now achieved a 45% gain since its last cycle low of $15,665 on November 22, 2022.
There are growing fears of a sudden retreat trap called the bull trap “Bitcoin Bull Trap” although the height still shows its strength.
The bull trap is a reversal of trend that forces market participants out of positions with unexpected losses.
Bitcoin markets have been trending lower since late 2021, with bitcoin still far from its peak of 67%.
But since the beginning of 2023, bitcoin’s price has sent more positive signs that the downward trend could be reversed.
Concerns about bitcoin bull trap:

More sentiment seems to be driving towards a bull trap scenario, with patterns like this appearing in Tradingview:
Others reposted the market psychology chart that pops up during each bear market.
Others consider that we have already finished the bear market as the famous analyst and chart holder “PlanB” remains confident that the bear market will end, tweeting:

Bitcoin trades at the time of publication of the article for $22,722.
On January 23, bitcoin reached an intraday high of $23,262, its highest since mid-August.
Resistance recorded in September was broken, indicating that speculators on the rise had not yet lost their power.
