Bitcoin stays in place with the annual closing adjustment to seal the 60% annual price loss. Small BTC price action welcomes traders in the final hours of 2022, with Bitcoin avoiding any last-minute trend changes.
Bitcoin price: Where is the volatility?
cryptocoin.com As you can follow, the market lacks volatility in the last days of the year. Hence, it allowed traders to predict Bitcoin’s 2022 annual close until the last minute. Data from TradingView shows that BTC is holding onto a familiar area around $16,500. BTC had a flat Christmas.

Arthur Hayes, former CEO of BitMEX exchange, looks a little beyond the close. Because Hayes hoped that Bitcoin would not fall below the $ 15,500 level after FTX. In this context, “If BTC can hold FTX bottoms, that’s positive. Let’s see what the new year will bring?” makes the comment.
More categorical when it comes to bearish predictions was popular analyst Cypto Tony, who doubled down on his current theory that further declines will come before Bitcoin’s recovery. “This remains my macro view of Bitcoin where we see another drop before accumulation before the next bull run,” he tells his Twitter followers.
