Despite ongoing talk about Bitcoin potentially dropping significantly, some cryptocurrency analysts aren’t convinced it will happen.


Bitcoin’s price has remained steady, staying just above the critical $65,000 support level. Many traders feel confident in this stability. In fact, some are now questioning whether a big drop is likely to occur anytime soon.

Bitcoin Price Stability Amidst Speculation: Crypto Traders’ Perspectives

According to pseudonymous crypto trader Yoddha, Bitcoin’s current strong price performance suggests a deep correction might not be imminent, as he shared with his 49,000 followers on May 18.

Meanwhile, pseudonymous trader Rekt Capital pointed out that a significant correction has already occurred, noting Bitcoin’s price drop from $66,421 on April 24 to $56,792 on May 2, based on CoinMarketCap data.

“We’ve experienced a deep and prolonged correction, and with a combination of these factors, the bottom is often near,” Rekt Capital asserted in a recent update.

Despite this, Bitcoin bounced back above the critical support level of $65,146 on May 6, a pattern some traders see as typical during bullish phases.

“Normal corrections in Bitcoin bull markets tend to be sharp and swift, followed by a rapid recovery,” explained crypto commentator Starbust in a post on May 18.

Analysts are closely monitoring Bitcoin’s price for indications of further correction, especially following the Bitcoin halving event on April 20, drawing comparisons to past halvings as a guide.

For instance, after the May 2020 halving, Bitcoin surged from $9,383 to $58,958 by May 2021. However, just a month later, it experienced a 40% correction, dropping to $35,484 in June.

Some analysts argue that scrutinizing Bitcoin’s price chart is futile until it breaks past $70,000, nearing its all-time high again.

On May 17, Mati Greenspan, founder of Quantum Economics, highlighted, “It’s the breakouts that are exciting, so until we have a breakout, analyzing the charts will be pretty futile.” Pseudonymous crypto trader PlanC echoed this sentiment, advising to “forget all the short-term price action.”
