    “As these individuals from the UK and EU see the value of their currency collapsing, they effectively selling the pound and euro for Bitcoin. If this were just a trade to capture the volatility, we would have seen similar spikes in May 2021 and certainly in March 2020.”

    Assume record buying in Pounds and Euros matters. Then for price to be struggling in this price zone implies others are dumping Bitcoin enough to matter.
