Expert predicts Bitcoin surge after jobs report - Is $30,500 next ?

Bitcoin’s (BTC) price has been volatile in recent months, with significant price swings and periods of consolidation.

On May 5, crypto trading expert Michael van de Poppe tweeted his thoughts on the digital asset’s current price movements, suggesting that Bitcoin is “constantly flipping levels and back in the range.”

However, he also expressed cautious optimism, stating that he would prefer to see Bitcoin hold at the $28,900 level, which could generate momentum toward $30,500. The trader acknowledged the impact of impact employment rates and that any ‘important news later that could push prices.’

While Bitcoin has experienced significant price swings in recent months, van de Poppe’s analysis suggests there is still potential for the digital asset to gain ground. Still, it suggests broader economic factors could further influence Bitcoin’s price movements.

Bullish BTC pattern

Earlier this week, Finbold reported on Bitcoin’s price chart forming a rising wedge at the end of its recent downtrend. The rising wedge pattern is considered a significant technical pattern by traders, as it can identify potential trend reversals and highlight key price levels.

In this case, the rising wedge pattern was analyzed by a popular Twitter chart pattern analyst, Trader Tardigrade, who pointed out that it represented a “super BULLISH pattern.”

While technical patterns such as the rising wedge can provide valuable insights into market trends, it is important to note that they are not foolproof and must be considered alongside other factors such as macroeconomic developments and investor sentiment.

On May 5, Trader Tardigrade reiterated that BTC is preparing for an ‘incoming bull run.’

Bitcoin price analysis

Bitcoin’s current trading price of $29,110 reflects the ongoing volatility and complexity of the cryptocurrency market. While the digital asset is up by 0.16% in the last 24 hours, it has experienced a 0.62% drop in value over the past week.

Traders in the cryptocurrency market must closely monitor Bitcoin’s support and resistance levels as they can provide important insights into potential price movements and trend reversals. Finbold identified the support level of $27,892 and resistance level of $30,094, particularly, as worth closely monitoring as they represent critical psychological thresholds for Bitcoin’s price action.

Currently, Bitcoin’s trading price of $29,110 falls within this more or less in the middle of the range, indicating the potential for further volatility in the short term. While the digital asset has seen some stability in the last week, it remains subject to sudden price swings and significant market movements.

Despite this, Bitcoin’s total market capitalization of $563 billion underlines its continued importance in the broader cryptocurrency ecosystem.
