Analyst predicts Bitcoin price drop to $27,000 for this reason

Bitcoin, alongside top cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, Cardano, XRP, Solana, Dogecoin and BNB, recently witnessed a correction in prices. According to legendary investor and trader Peter Brandt, this could be more than a price correction. 

Brandt rose to fame through his accurate and timely prediction of Bitcoin’s colossal crash in 2018. The analyst predicted BTC’s most significant move, an 80% decline in Bitcoin price. 

In a recent tweet, Brandt evaluated Bitcoin’s price structure and highlighted “structural similarities” between BTC’s current trend and on the eve of the 80% drop in 2018. Brandt told his 634,300 followers that the BTC chart is “deja vu all over again.”

Cryptocurrency analysts at Stck.pro have identified a death cross in the Bitcoin price chart. Analysts believe Bitcoin price is at risk of close to a 50% drop, and $25,000 is the downside target for BTC. Lark Davis, a leading YouTuber and crypto analyst, recently evaluated the impact of a death cross on Bitcoin price. 

The last two times there was a death cross on the three-day Bitcoin price chart it resulted in a 50% drop in price. Davis argues that Bitcoin is two weeks away from a death cross and expects a similar outcome.
