Bullish? Bitcoin on exchanges drops to lowest in 6 years

Amid an exceptionally bullish period for the majority of assets in the cryptocurrency sector, Bitcoin (BTC) is performing particularly well, as it has already surpassed a price mark at $52,000, and its amount on crypto exchanges suggest more gains in the future.

As it happens, the amount of Bitcoin held in crypto wallets on known digital asset exchanges has dropped to its lowest level in six years, according to the recent information shared by renowned crypto trading analyst Ali Martinez in an X post published on February 14.

Specifically, as per the chart patterns analyzed by the crypto expert, this amount stood at just 2.34 million BTC on February 13, dropping significantly over the last week and suggesting a “growing trend of investors moving their BTC off exchanges, potentially indicating a shift toward long-term holding.”

On the other hand, Martinez also earlier warned that a technical analysis (TA) indicator that has often reliably suggested a trend change – the TD Sequential – has flashed a strong sell signal on Bitcoin’s daily chart, suggesting a possible decline for the price of Bitcoin awaits, as Finbold reported.

All things considered, Bitcoin seems to be on an unstoppable rally upwards. However, one should do their own due diligence and examine all other factors, as well as weigh the risks, before making a final decision on investing a larger amount of money in it, as things in this sector could change unexpectedly.
