Bitcoin was again trading in the range around $47,000. However, blockchain data shows a huge accumulated demand for Bitcoin, which underpins the recent rally. The price of Bitcoin is currently at the bottom end of a strong on-chain support zone. Bitcoin’s inability to break through the $55,000 pressure zone could be a sign that it might touch $30,000 again. It’s worth noting that Bitcoin has historically always closed in red during September since its launch. Investors should control their risk.
