On the monthly chart, there are positive signs flashing already. With March also coming to an end now, the quarterly chart seems to be quite interesting. At the moment, Bitcoin’s bullish quarterly candle is engulfing the past 6-months’ price action. According to pseudonymous analyst Rekt Capital,

Bitcoin’s on-chain indicators turn bullish

With the price successfully breaking barriers and consistently rising, on-chain indicators have started flashing optimistic signs. Recently, CryptoQuant founder, Ki Young Ju, took to Twitter to highlight that Bitcoin has stepped into its bull phase.

Towards the end of January this year, the bull/bear market cycle indicator pointed towards “early bull.” As shown below, this metric’s reading has been oscillating in the 0-1 bracket of late, indicating that the conditions are currently bullish.

Furthermore, for the first time since 2021, Bitcoin recently stepped into the bullish territory [yellow] on the Mayer Multiple bands. This metric is essentially used to compare and analyze Bitcoin’s price with respect to its past movements.

Specifically, the Mayer Multiple reading stands at 1.37. In the past, whenever Bitcoin has rallied, this metric’s reading has mostly reflected readings above 1.5. Thus, it currently indicates that the asset has started gearing up for the next bull run.

The current state of the market is quite similar to the 2018-19 market. After spending almost a year in the bearish territory, Bitcoin rebounded. In fact, on the bands, BTC glided up to the bullish extension territory by the end of the cycle.

At the moment, the bullish extension arena extends from $33.6k to $49.4k. Thus, the levels can be considered to be mid-term targets, if the current bullish conditions persist.
