Examining this performance in the context of Glassnode’s Bitcoin Investor Tool, a tool designed for long-term investors, can provide valuable insights. The tool uses a 2-year MA and a 5x multiple of the 2-year MA to indicate potential cyclical tops or bottoms.

Historically, trading below the 2-year MA has generated outsized returns and signaled bear cycle lows. On the other hand, trading above the 2-year MA x5 has historically signaled bull cycle tops, a zone where investors usually de-risk.

The recent price increase saw Bitcoin breach above the 2-year MA for the first time since May 2022, when it was priced at $30,000.
