1. Market Trend

Between May 18 and May 21, the BTC price fluctuated between $26,361.20 and $27,500,00, with a volatility of 4.32%. According to the 1-hour candle chart, in the early morning on May 18, the price surpassed the $27,000 level, reaching a peak of $27,500. It has previously touched this level multiple times, resulting in intense speculation between longs and shorts. Subsequently, the price traded sideways above the $27,000 level. In the early morning of May 19, the bears gained the upper hand again, and the volume caused a drop below $27,000, reaching a low point near $26,300. Afterward, it consolidated and remained below $27,000, which had been identified as a significant resistance level in the past. As a result, both longs and shorts became cautious. Given the recent trend, it is advisable to wait patiently for a qualitative breakthrough (a rapid surge with high volume) and then select suitable investment opportunities.
