Bitcoin (BTC) was keen to hold on to $ 44,000 on October 1 as the monthly close triggered a late show of force.
Monthly BTC close matches PlanB’s prediction
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView tracked BTC / USD as it first returned to the $ 44,000 mark on Thursday, then tested lower levels before rising even higher.
While still not tackling resistance at $ 45,000 and above, Bitcoin did not disappoint with its month-end performance, which almost exactly matches the forecast of the creator of the PlanB stock-flow model for a second consecutive month.

With $ 63,000 now slated for October, expectations were high for Bitcoin to make up for lost ground in the fourth quarter.
“September was bad. October is great. November is great. December is great,” said Michaël van de Poppe, Cointelegraph contributor. abstract, telling Twitter followers to “buy the fucking dive.”
Van de Poppe highlighted the historic performance over several months each year, which Cointelegraph previously noted anything but September recorded as 30 ‘boring’ days.
Others, on the other hand, were more cautious. In its latest market update, crypto trading firm QCP Capital said it will remain cautious in its approach to the market as a whole.
“Overall, we are struggling to find directional conviction amid the cross winds of the macro and the market. Our strategy for the fourth quarter is to remain fairly neutral and nimble,” the executives summed up.
The macroeconomic factors at play were China’s reiteration of its crackdown on crypto and two issues in the United States: the legislation and the potential approval of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF).
On Friday, a vote on the government’s infrastructure bill, originally scheduled for Monday, was again delayed after a shutdown later this month was avoided in a separate vote.
