The fantastic BTC price growth by almost 50% ignited in the investors’ eyes confidence and optimism in the future. Buyers stopped their pressure in the previous month just near the historical high, leaving a lot of intrigue for December. Open interest in the coin is constantly growing and despite the expensive price and decent volatility, buyers continue to greedily buy. However, over the last 3 weeks, there has been a noticeable slowdown in the price growth and sellers’ activity on the BTC market.

Of course, the current weekly candle has not closed yet and there is a possibility of keeping this mark. Though, looking at the price movements dynamics at the moment – the probability of the insane BTC growth correction beginning is higher.

A local weakening of a local trend does not mean its end. Therefore, the cancellation of this correction scenario is possible if the mark of $18,400 is kept under buyers’ control. In this case, by the end of the new year, buyers will install new jewelry on the historical BTC high and lay a great foundation for the whole of 2021.
