Bitcoin Price Drop To $3200 Would Still Continue Uptrend, Fundstrat Confirms

The price of Bitcoin may be heading down to $3200, new research has warned as the first and foremost cryptocurrency fails to find support at its April lows of $6450.


The Bigger Picture

In a detailed transaction analysis released June 13, Fundstrat Global Advisors concluded that due to the lack of support BTC/USD could hit Februarys $6900 low before rebounding and subsequently falling further to somewhere between $5000 and $5500.

The findings begin:

This week, with almost all [cryptocurrencies] breeching important support at the prior weeks lows (BTC 7355, 7058) many are now stress testing/breaking next important support levels notably BTC at the April lows at 6450.

Long term, prices could then fall much further towards the bottom end of Bitcoins multi-year upward trend channel, which began in 2016.This would mean a descent to around $3200 a more than 80 percent correction versus all-time highs, but still signaling a continuation of a general uptrend.

Such behavior would mimic Bitcoin in 2014, Fundstrat says echoing similar conclusions made last week from cryptocurrency trading analyst Tone Vays.

What would a bear market like 2014 imply for BTC? For reference, a similar correction would imply a decline to the lower end of its trend channel coinciding with BTCs 2016-2017 uptrend near $3200, analysts commented.



$25k Still In Play For Lee

Since publishing the warning, Bitcoin has already hit further lows of $6217, before rebounding. At the time of this writing, prices are hovering around $6500.

Fundstrats co-founder Tom Lee, who contributed to the latest update, nonetheless remains noticeably bullish on Bitcoin even in the shorter term.

By year-end, Lee still expects prices to reach $25,000 $5000 more than Decembers all-time highs. He reiterated this stance last month, despite the Consensus conference failing to produce an up-to-70 percent price rally Lee himself had forecast. He explained:

Bitcoin doesnt have to go up every day to move from $8,000 to $25,000.The ten best days account for all the return of bitcoin in a year. If you didnt own bitcoin for ten days each year, you lost 25 percent each year.
