Note this micro observation - most recent bullish consolidations have lasted 3-4 days, starting from the original reversal at USD 29K. 

The ever-declining volume is also worth mentioning. If bears become too prolific and pile in the short-sells at major support, then chances are they’re in for a hard squeeze.

Moving the focus towards altcoins, many have already started rebounding after last night’s shakeout.

Q’s Conclusion

The altcoins may receive a modest tailwind as risk appetite in the market increases again. 

However, this respite is contingent on the BTC/USD trading pair’s continued consolidation while BTC.D continues declining.
