Crypto and stock markets were hit by shocks on Thursday and Friday, which drove most equities and digital assets downward to the end of the week. The bullish sentiment suddenly dropped from neutral to fear after the recent Bitcoin price crash that triggered selloffs in the broader crypto market.
Veteran trader Peter Brandt has once again come up with a warning for the Bitcoin market. He revealed that BTC price is again retesting the neckline on the underlying inverted head-and-shoulders pattern. Peter Brandt predicts a BTC price fall and warns that a close below 24,800 would damage the daily and weekly graphs.
Market analyst Rekt Capital noted that Bitcoin had posted a very bearish technical signal. With the Double Top pattern now complete, BTC could soon see $26k as resistance rather than support as in trends downward.
Popular crypto analyst CrediBULL Crypto, Crypto Tony, and Crypto Birb predict $25k as the best price to buy the dip. CrediBULL Crypto predicted that Bitcoin price will not fall below $25,000 and a similar market correction happened before BTC price hit an all-time high.
