Bitcoin price action could be targeting $58,000 on the back of low funding rates.
Bitcoin (BTC) is riding high on the back of a "very low and healthy" indicator, according to one market analyst, which could propel it to a key resistance level at $58,000.
In a tweet on April 27, analyst Lex Moskovski noted that futures funding rates are suggesting this week's BTC price run has been completely organic.
Funding rates are a popular metric for measuring the health of BTC price movements.
They essentially show which traders are on the right side of the bet (long or short) — a high funding rate on a platform means longs are "paying" shorts, while low funding rates imply the opposite.
Specifically, the 0. 618 Fibonacci level, as ever a source of support and resistance aims, now sits at just above $58,000 — also the site of a Bitcoin all-time high from February, which held for multiple weeks.
These have contained BTC/USD throughout recent price dips, with the 100-day and 21-week figures regarded as a line in the sand for bulls.
