Anything could happen in final hours of Sunday
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView painted an interesting picture Sunday, as commentators waited for some classic end-of-week volatility.
BTC/USD had delivered few surprises over the weekend, with an overnight dip to near $45,500 the worst that hodlers had to confront.
Now, the odds were on for a potential second weekly close above the 2022 yearly open of $46,200.
Risk appetite in the short term thus contradicted forecasts of a risk asset rout engendered by macro factors, something analysts nonetheless had tipped to become a feature in Q2.
