Bitcoin price eyes $1000: Henrik Zeberg”

A cryptocurrency trader and analyst on Twitter Henrik Zeberg is not afraid to openly speak of Bitcoin’s possible dive to $1,000. Zeberg is choosing to remain bearish in spite of Bitcoin price recovery from levels around $3,864 (reached in March) to highs close to $7,500 (earlier this week). Using the chart below, the trader points out that Bitcoin is vulnerable at $7,200.

Alongside the gold, the world’s most precious metal, Bitcoin is likely to fall into another selloff. Zeberg says that “Bitcoin and gold are so misunderstood at this point! We have strong illiquid phase in front of us.”

Bitcoin price technical picture

According to the daily chart, Bitcoin upside is limited by the 50-day SMA. Movement above $7,400 (tipping point) could push the price above $7,500. This is likely to shift the focus back to $8,000.

However, in relation to Zeberg’s bearish prediction, a bearish pennant patent puts Bitcoin in grave danger of breaking down to retest the support at $6,000 or even $5,000.

Meanwhile, short term analysis shows Bitcoin is likely to embrace consolidation as long as the RSI keeps on with the leveling motion between 50 and 60.
