Bitcoin Analysts Divided on Chance Of Parabolic Advance Over $9k

Bitcoin Analysts Divided on Chance Of Parabolic Advance Over $9k

Bitcoin price was causing mixed feelings June 9 as continued sideways trading put an end to hopes of another parabolic advance.


Demeester: 2019 is 2012 Repeat

Data from cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamps generally more conservative price tracker put BTC/USD at $7720 as of press time Monday.

The pair had had a rocky weekends trading, losing around 9 percent since Friday and bottoming out at $7533. 24-hour losses totaled 2.7%, while monthly performance remains stronger at 14.4% gains.

Bitcoin price 00 retracement after hitting $9000 has nonetheless instilled caution in analysts. Tuur Demeester, founding partner at Adamant Capital and a regulator Bitcoin commentator, noted BTC/USD had broken a key trendline last week, having already sounded the alarm about a new downturn.

Should $9,000 prove the top (which is not a given) and if then wed see a 2012-style correction repeated, we would expect after an initial crash to see bitcoin trade in a range between $6,800 and $7,680 (2744% retrace of the rally), he wrote in a blog post June 5.


For Demeester, a key aspect of this years Bitcoin price rally is its similarity to a previous bull cycle in 2012.

This time around, however, increased market maturity is resulting in differing qualities, but excessive short term optimism remains a factor.

In our opinion, and as Peter Brandt argues, for this bull market to continue at a healthier pace we need for the FOMO to subside, which will likely happen via a violent correction, he concluded.

After that, we could for a few months see bitcoin trade in a range with lows that are 25% below whatever the high this parabolic curve will produce.


BTC Price Phase Or Fail?

As Bitcoinist reported, Brandt had himself appeared overly optimistic at the end of May, saying he felt comfortable getting exposure to Bitcoin again as the cryptocurrency traded around $8400.

John Bollinger meanwhile warned Bitcoin traders to pay attention at the beginning of June as uncertainty in markets continued, highlighting the possibility of an up to 50% correction.

Even now, however, not everyone is pessimistic. For the social media trader known as Rhythm, the current wavering simply marks the brooding phase of a parabolic trend, something similar to Bitcoins 2017 performance.

This $BTC parabolic rise is still on-going and has yet to break, he summarized Monday.

Earlier today, Bitconist noted that BTC price has recorded the biggest weekly loss since December 2018.
