Crypto expert predicts Bitcoin to rocket above $50k

Crypto expert predicts Bitcoin to rocket above $50k

While the spot-Bitcoin ETFs started trading just a little over a month ago, the reaction of Bitcoin (BTC) was suboptimal, as it briefly retreated below the $40,000 threshold, surprising many and echoing bearish predictions.

However, in recent days, the flagship crypto appears to be on a steady road to recovery, surpassing the $47,000 mark as the inflows into ETFs begin to stabilize.

BTC is probably seeking liquidity levels above previous highs, potentially surpassing the threshold of $51,800 before the upcoming halving event, according to cryptocurrency expert Michael van de Poppe’s post on X on February 9.

“It seems likely we’re looking for the liquidity above the highs and perhaps the one above $51,800 pre-halving. The markets are strong. Dips of 20% on Bitcoin are a buy.”

The range low looks set just below the threshold of $38,126.

However, based on the recent strong performances, van de Poppe readjusted his range of high predictions, which might now go up from $55,000 to $58,000 before the halving event.

A usual historical movement before halving

Looking at the historical movements, it is easy to deduce patterns of price movements and notable surges and dips. When it comes to halving events, Bitcoin is quite repetitive.

Technical indicators point above $50,000

Analyzing the technical aspects, it is noteworthy that a bullish trend has emerged. Bitcoin has successfully surpassed the resistance level of $44,000, indicating a significant breakout in the market.

This breakout is a robust indication of the prevailing bullish sentiment and suggests the potential for further gains in the market. Additionally, the importance of the weekly closing above $47,000 is a crucial technical confirmation of a new bullish trend. This level holds significance in determining the direction of the market.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) chart is a momentum-based visualization tool for analyzing the Bitcoin market. It gauges the velocity and the scale of directional price changes within Bitcoin. BTC’s RSI is 71, placing it in the overbought territory.

Upon further examination of the technical indicators, we observe a ‘strong buy’ rating of 16, indicating a favorable sentiment. Now at 14, the moving averages also trend toward a ‘strong buy.’ However, oscillators currently indicate a ‘neutral’ rating of 8.

It is essential to note the ease in Bitcoin’s price recovery, which signifies strong backing that may propel it toward further price gains, but whether that is $50,000, below, or more remains to be seen.
