Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Likely to Drop Before Climbing Higher
Because Bitcoin’s recent rally has stalled, analysts now believe that it needs to drop lower before garnering enough buying pressure to push it above $4,000.
Flood, an extremely popular cryptocurrency trader on Twitter, told his over 60k followers that he thinks BTC will drop to $3,800 before continuing to surge, but further adding that a drop below $3,700 would likely lead the crypto back towards its support levels in the low-$3,000 region.
“I’d imagine we see a sweep of 3800 in order for larger players who missed the move to fill up on some longs and reduce some short hedges. This should be followed by a sharp bounce… $BTC seems fairly bullish here, but if 3700 breaks I wouldn’t stay in any longs,” he said.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.
