Bitcoin price could hit bottom at $24,000 according to analysts

Dave the Wave, is a leading cryptocurrency analyst and YouTuber, popular for predicting the May 2021 bloodbath in Bitcoin price. The analyst accurately predicted the May 2021 crash in Bitcoin, when BTC price hit $25,400, and the double top pattern at $69,000. Popular for his notoriously accurate predictions, the analyst recently revealed his thoughts on fresh evidence Bitcoin will form a new price bottom

The analyst believes Bitcoin price is headed back towards its May bottom and will soon turn over and begin its descent. Dave told his 1.11 million Twitter followers that he foresees Bitcoin trading near its 48-month moving average. According to the analyst, this is the spot where Bitcoin historically tends to hit bottom. 

Dave was quoted as saying,

Arguably, another month in it [on the basis of this metric]… which is what you’d expect if [Bitcoin] price is to re-test the lows over the course of this month.

Three indicators that signal the Bitcoin price bottom 

Dave believes Bitcoin’s Logarithmic Growth Curve channel, Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD) and Relative Strength Index (RSI), are signaling that the bottom will be hit in the next few months. 

These technical indicators are used to identify strong trading signals and identify overbought or oversold territory in a cryptocurrency. At the current levels, the analyst believes these indicators signal that Bitcoin price could hit its bottom ($24,000), as early as this month, June 2022

The analyst was quoted as saying,

Diminishing Bitcoin price cycles theory

Dave supports the narrative of diminishing Bitcoin price cycles. He argues Bitcoin price cycles have become increasingly shorter and are “diminishing” with a rise in maturity in the crypto market. 

Dave’s conclusion is similar to Benjamin Cowen’s, a leading crypto analyst who believes Bitcoin lengthening cycles are dead. The bear market has been here for months now, and is likely to rage on. Cowen applies Macro trading, an investment approach that considers factors such as inflation, interest rate and fiscal policy’s influence to Bitcoin price. He believes the bear market could persist and the long winter could be a macro “bottom” signal for Bitcoin price

Analysts at FXStreet believe Bitcoin price could rally to $35,000 target over the weekend. For more information, watch this video:
