Quickly after the bear backside formation befell, these cycles noticed the asset experiencing a restoration rally. Within the present cycle up to now, it’s not utterly sure but if the November 2022 low seen after the FTX crash was certainly the cyclical backside.
Nevertheless, if it’s assumed that this low was certainly the underside, then the rally that has been happening previously few months would take the position of the restoration rally within the present cycle.
Apparently, up to now, the cryptocurrency has seen an uplift of 91% for the reason that aforementioned backside, which could be very comparable in scale to the restoration rallies of the previous cycles.
