August saw an 18% drop in BTC price and the SEC handled the crypto market its first bearish sentiment on the first day of September by delaying its decision on Bitcoin ETFs. September has historically been a weak month for risk assets.

However, he remains bullish on a massive rally in Q4 and predicts $24,700-25,200 as potential entry points. Also, Bitcoin halving will also become a buy factor.

“If that’s lost, then we’re losing construction and are aiming at deeper, $23-23.5K or even $20K. As we’re approaching a significant year of 2024, it might be your final dip to buy.”

CredibleCrypto noted that the primary reason for Bitcoin price drop is large forced liquidations and not spot holders unloading. He shared that aggregate open interest shows not many traders left to liquidate, hinting at a limited downside.

Typically, after aggregate OI dropped to below 7 billion levels for the last 12 months there was buying. Bitcoin open interests are currently at 7.5 billion from a high of 11 billion before the last major selloff. Thus, there will be limited downside after Bitcoin price falls below $24,800.
