Bitcoin price continues to divide crypto market. This is what analysts say

When we compare the various analyses side by side, we see that analysts remain divided on the future of Bitcoin. We look at various opinions, such as fundamental analysis, technical analysis and Elliott Wave analysis.

Invesco analyst is pessimistic about the ‘Bitcoin bubble’

Investor Invesco has a pessimistic view. They argue that Bitcoin rose to $68,000 too quickly last year, creating a bubble. They expect this bubble to burst this year and next before we can see another big rise.

Director Paul Jackson explains that he sees synonyms with the huge rises and marketing of stocks before the 1929 crash. With this, Bitcoin meets his “mania criteria. As a result, he expects the price of Bitcoin to be around $34,000-$37,000 by the end of October.

Technical analyses show price rise

If we leave this pessimistic view (of which Jackson himself notes the margin of error) and turn to the technical analyses we see a different picture. On the contrary, the well-known analyst TechDev is optimistic about the market and sees that the price of Bitcoin is still moving in the margins of cycles from previous years. He is therefore optimistic and expects a recovery. This is supported in the following technical analysis.

The Elliott Wave analysis also brings a more positive outlook on the upcoming Bitcoin price.

In a comprehensive analysis, it is shown that according to the Elliott Wave Analysis, Bitcoin is moving close to the end of its fourth wave. This could create a new bull wave that could bring the Bitcoin price, as already expected last year, towards new price records and perhaps the $100,000 mark.
