Bitcoin January candle is looking like a “rocket ship” and gains surpass S&P 500’s after only 30 days
Bitcoin has been in a volatile uptrend for weeks; this has allowed BTC to set a significant gap between the recent lows of $ 6,400 and the current price of $ 9,500.
This upward momentum has caused a growing market structure, leaving some analysts and investors excited, and even define BTC’s macro technical situation as a ‘rocket ship.’
However, it’s important to note that this excitement had left other analysts tired when the remarkable price drops followed a lot of optimism in history.

However, this strong sell-off has been proven to be fleeting, as it was followed by a significant buying pressure that catalyzed upward movement, setting a new high of 2020 at $ 9,550.
Because BTC has not yet faced any sharp declines from recently established highs and today is the monthly closing day, its “January candle looks like a rocketship,” MoonOverlord tweeted.

Bitcoin gains surpassed the S&P 500’s in 2019 after only 30 days
After crowning the most profitable investment in the last decade, Bitcoin continues to delight investors in 2020. The market capitalization of digital assets has increased by about 30% in just the past 30 days.
The S&P 500 achieved a 29% profit throughout the year. 2019 is also one of the best years ever for the US stock market, according to the New York Times.
Anthony Pompliano, partner of Morgan Creek Digital Assets, pointed out the equivalent increase of two markets in very different periods.
The S&P 500 was up 29% in 2019, which marked one of the best years ever for the stock market.
Bitcoin is already up more than that just in the month of January.
