$63,000 Coming for Bitcoin?

Popular crypto analyst Michael van de Poppe stated the BTC price has been stuck for a long time between $57K and $73K and he expects it to decline further in the early part of this week. However, the analyst expects the BTC price to hold firmly in the range of $63K and $64.5K.

Bullish divergence has solidified, with the price attempting to maintain above $66,300. It’s crucial for bulls to step up now and reclaim this range. Bitcoin’s sideways price action has led to some impatience among investors. However, if the BTC price manages to give some surprises on the upside.

Crypto analyst Ali Martinez highlighted a significant potential liquidation event on Binance should Bitcoin’s price reach $67,450. Martinez projected that approximately $19.50 million worth of positions could be liquidated on the exchange under these conditions. This observation underscores the volatility and risk management challenges associated with trading cryptocurrencies at high price levels.
