Bitcoin (BTC) is recording significant profit fluctuations, especially from short-term investors. The price of this digital currency is currently hovering at $68,740.53, having shown signs of recovery and significant growth in recent times.

Short-term investors take advantage of the profits

However, blockchain data and market analysis show a notable profit-taking trend among investors holding BTC for less than five months, according to data from CryptoQuant. The Spent Output Profit Ratio (SOPR) points to a significant move parallel to the profit-taking trend observed in previous bull markets.

Short-term investors are taking advantage of this opportunity to withdraw profits. Analysis of SOPR data shows that short-term BTC holders are actively taking profits, creating a trend similar to what the market has seen in the past.

This marks a pivotal period for Bitcoin, reflecting market sentiment from record high prices. Crypto Dan emphasized that, “This opportunity only comes around every few years,” given its rarity and importance given the current market situation.

Regardless of the potential effects of this trend, the launch of a spot Bitcoin ETF and the expected inflows from institutional and individual investors are creating a complex landscape, making it difficult to interpret the activities. This profit-taking action in the current bull market context becomes a challenge.

Bitcoin’s Resilience

The analyst argues that Bitcoin is set for a strong resurgence in 2024 after a short correction period. Bitcoin’s resilience has been highlighted by crypto experts such as James Check, who is known as @Checkmatey on social media, giving further insight into the market’s behavior.

By analyzing Bitcoin’s Market Value to Actual Value (MVRV) ratio and Actual Price, Check reveals the psychological valuation patterns that influence investor decisions. He noted that the +1 standard deviation, currently at $70.8k, serves as an incentive for many investors to secure their profits.

This resulted in the re-introduction of approximately 735k BTC into the market, with an estimated 60% coming from the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) and the remainder from individual holders. Regardless of this selling activity, the Bitcoin market only recorded a 20% correction from the FTX lows, showing the strength and demand-driven nature of the current bull market. “This is one of the strongest BTC emergences in spot demand in bull market history,” he added.
