Cryptocurrency analyst Michaël van de Poppe, on the other hand saw $27,500 USD as the critical region to break. Since Bitcoin has sent past this, he predicts the token to smash new all-time highs:
Well, a lower timeframe chart analysis on the recent movements of #Bitcoin.
The downtrend for now, crucial breaker at $27,000-27,500. If that breaks -> new all-time highs.
Support is looking heavy as it has been tested a few times.
Next area around $24,500 if $26,000 is lost. pic.twitter.com/vZMmiIw5wV
