The MACD indicator suggests that the token saw a bullish divergence as the MACD line (blue) broke above the signal line (orange). However, this divergence didn’t lead to any drastic rise in prices as the token is still stuck below $45,000.

Bitcoin price analysis for Jan 17, 2022, suggests that volumes are too low and cannot confirm that Bitcoin will take a bullish course from hereon. The world’s biggest cryptocurrency seems to be in a bit of a pickle as Kazakhstan faced an internet blackout, as reported by TheCoinRise, leading to a protest. 

On the other hand, the delay in the approval of Bitcoin spot ETF is another reason why the prices haven’t been much excitement for the crypto market.
