Prediction of the week

Bitcoin drops to $26.5K, but trader sees a chance for a bullish surprise

On Bitstamp, the BTC/USD pair made a low of $26,519 this week, showing little signs of a trend change as the standoff between bulls and bears continued to produce little volatility.

Analyzing the current setup, pseudonymous trader Crypto Ed looked at the upside potential at $27,500. I think we go lower, but until we break above that $26,000, there is a chance for a bullish surprise, he said.

To break the current impasse, Crypto Ed continued, Bitcoin would still need to face the area above $27,600. I now think we will bounce towards the $27,500 resistance of the previous range top and from there I will possibly look shorts towards $25,000, he said.
