Bitcoin


A crypto analyst who correctly predicted that Bitcoin would hit the heights it is currently enjoying has once again given projections as to Bitcoin’s future trajectory. As part of his predictions, he highlighted the best and worst-case scenarios for the flagship cryptocurrency going forward. 

Bitcoin Could Ride To $60,000

In a live stream on his TechnicalRoundup YouTube channel, crypto analyst DonAlt noted that Bitcoin could rise to the resistance level of $60,000 based on historical patterns. The analyst had highlighted a bullish setup on the quarter timeframe, which had occurred both in 2018 and 2021. He also mentioned that the current quarterly is strikingly similar to those periods. 

The analyst believes that the road to $60,000 would be fuelled by the Spot Bitcoin ETF rumors (as has been the case so far) before an approval possibly comes in January. However, it is not all good news from the $60,000 price level, as DonAlt believes that the approval will be a ‘sell-the-news’ event.

If that were to be the case, he predicts that Bitcoin will drop to $35,000 before it trends upward afterward. He also provided a bearish side to the quarterly timeframe setup as he suggested that this is more likely to happen as it is more “accurate.”  For the bearish setup, he projects a close below the resistance level of $35,000. 

He stated that this would suggest a bearish restest and that investors could expect lower prices as a result of this.

Why An ETF Approval Will Be A ‘Sell-The-News’ Event

DonAlt further elaborated on his stance of a possible Spot Bitcoin ETF approval in January being a ‘sell-the-news’ event. He explained that the reason for this belief is because Bitcoin has ridden high (up about 3x from the bottom) on the back of these rumors. As such, this would naturally suggest that it is already priced in.

He further noted that he would have had a different opinion if Bitcoin had, for example, traded at around $25,000 and then an approval came. He believes that would have been an easy trade as the flagship cryptocurrency will undoubtedly fly high on the back of such development. 

Renowned Economist Peter Schiff shares similar sentiments as he once noted how Bitcoin has rallied significantly on the back of the ETF rumor. According to him, there will be no more “good news” to spark a Bitcoin rally once the pending Spot Bitcoin ETFs are approved.

However, trading firm QCP Capital recently highlighted what could prevent this from happening. The firm stated that a significant amount of inflows into these ETFs in the first few weeks of trading could prevent the classic sell-the-news event from happening. If these funds see enough liquidity, they project that Bitcoin could hit its all-time high (ATH) of $69,000 instead.
