  • Peter Brandt comes out with another pessimistic forecast.
  • BTC/USD is range-bound with a bullish bias on Tuesday.

The legendary trader and tech analyst Peter Brandt is sure that the bearish potential of Bitcoin is not over yet.

The analyst published a chart of bitcoin futures on the CME exchange and pointed out to Head and Shoulders (H&S) pattern, which indicates a potential decrease towards $ 3,905.

Usually, only one vertex is used as the “head” of a figure, but Brandt factored the price peaks of June, July, August and September into the model. Now he is doubtful that these predictions are valid.

I actually do not think this is a valid H&S top, but one never really knows until history is written, he tweeted

Notably, earlier, Peter Brandt said that in order to grow to new highs towards $50,000 Bitcoin needs to survive a fall to $5,500.

While the intraday recovery is capped by the upper line of 1-hour Bollinger Band, a sustainable move higher will allow for an extended recovery towards $7,650 and $7,700. On the downside, the local support is created by psychological $7,000 followed by the lower line of the daily Bollinger Band at $6,830.
