Veteran commodity trader and analyst Peter Brandt has taken to Twitter to share a Renko chart related to the flagship cryptocurrency, Bitcoin.

This chart, which originated in Japan, shows that both Bitcoin's rise to $65,000 and its decline, which has been going on since April, have been strong trends.

Will Bitcoin keep declining, despite regaining $30,000?

Peter Brandt has presented a Renko chart on Twitter, which best shows a long-term trend.

The chart shows that the rising trend for BTC stopped at its peak in April—the $64,863 reached on April 14—and the chart has been negative since then.

"Bitcoin is not in a good position short-term"

According to data provided by CryptoQuant analytics vendor, things do not look good for Bitcoin. The "quick take" shared by the company and the chart shows that Bitcoin spot reserves on exchanges are increasing. Derivative reserves are decreasing, which signifies that profit-taking is occurring. Stablecoin reserves are also increasing.

However, in another report, CryptoQuant states that the amount of stablecoins on exchanges remains close to its recent all-time highs. Since there is still a lot of liquidity on trading venues, the report says, it could be waiting to be deployed into Bitcoin in the mid- or long term.

If there was a bear market, these stablecoins would be withdrawn, a CryptoQuant analyst believes.

On Tuesday, the company also stated that Bitcoin is not in the bear market at the moment.

"Bitcoin fundamentals look good"

Head of MicroStrategy (the first publicly traded company that started accumulating Bitcoin last year) Michael Saylor has tweeted that "Bitcoin fundamentals have never been better." Among those fundamentals he mentioned were the power of the miner network and the breadth of institutional and individual investors.

Digital Assets director at VanEck asset manager, Gabor Gurbacs, also believes that Bitcoin is doing well, despite losing over 50 percent from its April all-time high.

He stated that, since early 2020 when the pandemic began, Bitcoin has surged from the $3,000 level, reaching a whopping $65,000 this year. With this background, the $30,000 price for Bitcoin is a positive sign.

Gurbacs does not believe that Bitcoin is in a correction now. He reckons that BTC has managed to get ahead of itself. According to Gurbacs, institutions may be waiting for the $25,000 range to get back into the market.
