Bitcoin Declining Volatility Could Stage New Bull-Run, Analyst Says

The Bitcoin price volatility in March is approaching its lowest levels on record, which could precede the next prolonged bull run, says one analyst.


Lowest Bitcoin Volatility on Record

Bitcoin is on the verge of recording its least volatile month, according to a report by Marketwatch. Citing Dow Jones market data, the report outlines that the monthly trading range of Bitcoin price for the month of March is at 7.8 percent.

Prior to that, the tightest monthly trading range for BTC/USD since the start of 2017 was 21.2 percent, while the average monthly trading range since October 2013 is 53.7 percent.

Commenting on the matter was popular cryptocurrency analyst Murad Mahmudov, who outlined:

Volatility is in itself a neutral signal. Historically, however, low-volatility periods in BTC have always preceded prolonged bull runs, especially after capitulation moments of high momentum as seen in November and December.

Nevertheless, its also worth noting that Mahmudov has previously said that he expects no bull run till Q2 2020.

Hes also put a price range for Bitcoins bottom in the $1700 $2400 area.


Not Everyone Agrees

Bitcoins high volatility has historically been pointed out as one of its main weaknesses. Yet, not everyone agrees. According to the CEO & co-founder of the cryptocurrency exchange BitMex, volatility is actually a much-needed quality for Bitcoin.

Back in 2018, he said:

You want as much volatility as possible to have as much chance that Bitcoin goes to $50,000, $100,000, $1,000,000, whatever that high number is.


Crypto Spring a Time of Volatility

In any case, Bitcoin has managed to bounce back upwards of $4,000 on Wednesday. As Bitcoinistreported, this was an important development because it signals that bulls are defending the $3,800 monthly open price point.

Also commenting on Bitcoins move above $4,000 was Mati Greenspan, senior market analyst at eToro, who explained, saying:

We cant go from [crypto] winter to summer in a few days, probably not even in a few weeks. Spring is generally a time of volatility where hot and cold often surprise us. Though Bitcoin has yet to snap the bear market, I do believe that crypto winter is now over and we are entering spring,
