Price Temperature Bands (BPT)

Price Temperature Bands (BPT)

The Price Temperature Bands (BPT) acts as a thermometer for the Bitcoin market, using the 4-year moving average as a reference to measure the 'temperature' of the price. Designed to capture the cyclical highs and lows of Bitcoin, which often follow its halvings and investment cycles, the BPT provides insights into when Bitcoin may be overvalued or undervalued.

Expanding Perspective with TB-X and BPT Oscillator

Dominando Cripto refined the BPT by adding two key metrics:

  • TB-X (Temperature Bands Multiplied by Fibonacci): This metric applies a Fibonacci factor to the Temperature Bands, like TB-0, TB-1, up to TB-8, to establish more precise reference points. This enriches the BPT analysis, allowing for a more detailed assessment of price conditions relative to the long-term moving average.

  • BPT Oscillator: This indicator measures how far the current Bitcoin price is from TB-0, the most immediate BPT reference point. It is useful for monitoring short-term fluctuations and understanding the current price position relative to the most recent band.

Interpreting the BPT

The BPT helps discern whether Bitcoin is fairly valued, overvalued, or undervalued:

  • Fair Valuation: A BPT close to zero indicates that the price is aligned with the 4-year moving average, suggesting a fair valuation.
  • Positive Extreme Valuation: A positively high BPT may signal overvaluation, pointing to a possible downward correction.
  • Negative Extreme Valuation: A negatively high BPT may indicate undervaluation, suggesting a buying opportunity.

Using BPT in Technical Analysis

Investors and traders can incorporate the BPT, TB-X, and BPT Oscillator into their technical analyses to identify buying or selling points, based on Bitcoin's relative valuation compared to its 4-year moving average. It is crucial to combine these indicators with other market analyses and information for well-founded decision-making.

Calculating the BPT

To calculate the BPT, measure the number of standard deviations that the current Bitcoin price deviates from the 4-year moving average. This is done by subtracting the current price from the moving average and dividing the result by the standard deviation of historical prices relative to the same average.


The BPT, along with TB-X and the BPT Oscillator, offers a three-dimensional approach to analyzing Bitcoin's valuation. However, it is essential to apply these indicators cautiously, especially in a market as volatile as cryptocurrencies, combining them with an arsenal of other analytical tools to make informed decisions and minimize risks.
