This rejection at a crucial resistance zone ($10,000) has confirmed to a number of analysts that more downside is likely
Bitcoin has seen a sharp correction after tapping $9,800 during Monday’s trading session. The cryptocurrency now trades for $9,300 — more than 5% below the highs.
This rejection at a crucial resistance zone ($10,000) has confirmed to a number of analysts that more downside is likely. A historically-accurate trader went as far as to say that the entire crypto market will see a minimum correction of 25%.
The fact that BTC has managed to hold the $9,000s for nearly two months now has been a bullish sign to some. They argue that the consolidation is extremely similar to that seen at the start of BTC’s last bull market.
Bitcoin dropping by 25% from current prices would result in a price of $7,000. And Ethereum doing the same would mean a move to the $175 region.
The trader predicted that Bitcoin would retrace to $6,400 when no one thought that would happen. He has also made a number of accurate medium-term predictions, calling that BTC would top its 2020 bull trend around $11,000.
Supporting the expectations of an impending move to the downside is ByteTree’s Charlie Morris.
1-week network velocity down to 454%, 5-wk 556%. Tx value down, av tx size down, fees down, MRI shot to pieces. Why the lack of interest? Can’t see price holding up. Fair value <$7k, Morris wrote.
Although Bitcoin may have a fundamental and technical case for a correction, strength in the S&P 500 could negate that trend.
As observed by JPMorgan earlier in June, “Cryptocurrencies have traded more like risky assets like equities—a significant change relative to the prior couple of years.”
