Research: How Low Can Bitcoin Price Go?
analysts tried to answer one of the most critical questions in the market today: how low can Bitcoin (BTC) go? To find the answer, analysts looked at the MVRV Z-score, which is a combination of market value (MV), realized value (RV) and Z-score.
The MVRV Z-Score is currently in the green zone, indicating a market bottom. However, this has been the case since the beginning of the bear market. During the previous bear markets of 2020, 2019, 2014 and 2011, the MVRV Z-Score remained in today’s range between 20 and 300 days, suggesting that the price of Bitcoin may remain the same for another six months.
Thus, Bitcoin may continue to go lower in the future. The nearest support level is $17,500, and a break below it would indicate that this bear market is not like previous ones.
Bitcoin (BTC) gained 1.2% in the last 24 hours to $19,172. Ethereum also rose 2.61% to $1,331.
