Bitcoin’s price remains in a downward trend as we approach the last meeting of the Federal Reserve Board for the year. The value of the king crypto has decreased by 1.05% in the previous twenty-four hours and by 1.66% in the past seven days as of the time this article was written.

After its most recent weekly finish, the Bitcoin to US Dollar exchange rate exhibited almost little upward momentum ahead of the opening of trading on Wall Street on December 12. The most significant cryptocurrency is still trading inside a rather small range, and market watchers are becoming more eager for fresh triggers to drive price action.

Traders are now in a state of uncertainty, not knowing how to do business in such a market. It would be prudent for them to investigate the options markets in order to determine whether or not Bitcoin will finally give in to the negative newsflow.

Analyst Shares Opinion on BTC Max Pain Point

Although it is reasonable to conclude that a new Bitcoin price decline would force many hodlers to reassess their investing approach, it is still unclear as to whether this bear market would be similar to the ones that have come before it or not.

In the past Bitcoin’s history, bear market bottoms were accompanied by at least 60 percent of the BTC supply being exchanged at a loss. This was the case when the market was at its lowest point. To this point, the market has nearly, but not quite, followed that trend.

However, as the analyst Mags clarified in his Twitter post, this does not suggest that the real max pain point is just around the corner. Mags is a cryptocurrency trader as well as a technical analyst, and he claims that he has been holding Bitcoin since 2016.

What is the max pain point?

The “max pain” or “max pain point” is the striking price point at which the greatest number of options contracts are currently active, and the price at which the asset would result in losses for the most option holders after expiry.

Simply put, “maximum pain” refers to the time at which option purchasers stand to lose the greatest money. Conversely, option sellers could benefit the most.

In Mags’ words:

“$10k – $14k won’t be Max pain for majority because most of you are prepared for it! The real max pain is the price moving inside a $500 range for months.”

He also said that most individuals would lose a significant sum of money due to excessive trading inside a 2% flat Range, adding that “as long as BTC does something (in any direction), we’re good”.

Meanwhile, as 2023 draws near, crypto enthusiasts are guessing at what would be the lowest potential price for cryptocurrencies. The failure of the exchange FTX has further compounded Bitcoin’s woes.

Some experts predict that by 2023, Bitcoin’s price might unexpectedly drop to the $5,000 range. If that happened, its current price of $16,900 would be reduced by another 70% then.

The decline or success of the crypto king will be influenced by inflation, interest rates, and the presumably oncoming recession. As we enter the year 2023, we can only hope that they become lower.

Closing Thoughts

Analyst Mags’s claims have been largely affirmed by the crypto community. Some others are holding out hope that Mags’ prediction would come true so that they may wait until later to invest in the leading cryptocurrency.

The interest in Bitcoin’s future performance among community members seems to be high. Where does it go, up or down?
