Bitcoin price has a lot to do with the supply and holders too. If you have looked at Glassnode’s data, over 80% of the total USD-denominated wealth invested in bitcoin has been moved for at least three months. When supply is dormant, the price is dormant, and this means that holders are unwilling to spend at a lower price.
