This could be taken as a positive sign, however, there are still considerable resistances that lay ahead for the BTC price.

Firstly, Bitcoin’s NVT ratio (7d MA) reached a 1-month low of 475. Low NVT values signify that investors are pricing Bitcoin at a discount. On-chain Transfer Volume and network utilization are also outpacing Market Cap growth.

That said, Bitcoin’s aSOPR (7d MA) reached a 1-month high of 0.99856 on Nov. 7. Around local price tops, a higher aSOPR value indicates that the magnitude of profit being realized is increasing with each rally. This also means that larger volumes of demand inflow capital are required to absorb coins sold at increasingly higher prices.

The Bitcoin price might be able to chart some short-term relief, but only a decisive close above the $21,000 mark can put bulls back on track to $22,000. The $20,500 level could potentially act as a strong support moving forward.
