1. Market Trend

Between May 11 and May 14, the BTC price fluctuated between $25,811.46 and $28,299.15, with a volatility of 8.79%. According to the 1-hour candle chart, BTC experienced a temporary decline of 2.4 percentage points with a volatility of 5.3 percentage points around 01:00 AM on May 11, due to rumors of the US government’s BTC holdings being transferred (later clarified to be false). Subsequently, the price continued to decline until reaching a low point at $25,811. After reaching the low point, there was a rebound in price accompanied by increased trading volume. The 1-hour candle chart closed with a bullish sentiment and consolidated below the $27,000 level. At 11:00 PM on May 14, the price broke through the resistance level of $27,000 and stabilized, indicating signs of a bullish reversal. However, it is still necessary to observe the situation regarding the breakthrough of the strong resistance level of $28,000.

Overall analysis shows that there are signs of market recovery recently, with BTC surpassing $27,000. Still, this rebound exhibits characteristics of being oversold, necessitating further observation regarding its sustainability. It is crucial to continue observing the performance near strong resistance levels such as $28,000 and $29,000.
