Bitcoin will go down before it goes up. This popular opinion is shared by Bob Loukas, the founder of The Financial Tap. He confirmed that the first cryptocurrency may retreat to $8,800-$7,800, while a close above $10,000 would confirm the bullish trend. He also added that in the mid-term, Bitcoin looks super bullish and on the verge of.a major four-year cycle. 

Action #bitcoin for intermediate term is super bullish IMO. The 4-Year Cycle is ready to begin it’s 12-20 month rising trend to blow-off top. However, move back towards $7.8k-$8.8k looks needed into July Cycle Low. Unless we close above $10.6k, where I’d say bull move confirmed, he tweeted.
