Up from here if it was back in time

A possible explanation for this state of affairs was that BTC had almost bottomed out. This was because a similar situation occurred in the 2015 and 2018 cycles. When it did, the market turned bullish as shown in the image above.

However, Lim noted that the reversal was not immediate, and this time it took a longer period of 1,444 days. Therefore, there was no guarantee that the extreme market condition was almost over. Lim said,

“It took 1358 days in 2018 and 1444 days in 2022 to make this movement. Although bull markets were not started immediately, the part where this movement came out was the bottom from a cycle perspective. Now I’m not sure what will happen because of the macro issues. The split purchase (accumulation) approach from a long-term perspective may still be the simple answer.”

But were other calculations correct? According to Glassnode, the z-score for market value to realized value (MVRV) was -0.236. Interestingly, the z-score had been in negative area since July 2022.

In the current state, the MVRV Z-score indicated that BTC had crossed below fair value. However, since it has been in such a state for several months, there was no guarantee that the UTXO state would trigger the reversal.

History has its role to play

Additionally, the Bitcoin Puell Multiple was in the green zone at 0.469. For context, the Puell Multiple shows the status of the 365-day moving average in daily Bitcoin issuance.

In a case where the value is between 4 and 8, it means market tops or a red zone. Since the current Puell multiple was between 0.3 to 0.5, it suggested proximity to the bottom. This condition can also indicate a price reversal.
