Over the past 24 hours, Bitcoin has surged over 20 percent. Now, the crypto community is having heated discussions on whether the major cryptocurrency is going to keep rising or show another price collapse.

Some believe that as BTC continues decoupling from traditional markets, the price is going to continue upwards.

‘Targeting $6,600-6,800 as next level’

Analyst Michael van de Poppe has shared his take on further BTC movement. The closest targets for him are the $6,600-$6,800 levels, he tweeted, as people have again turned ultra-bullish, seeing that Bitcoin is recovering its losses quickly.

Prior to that, ‘Crypto Michael’ wrote that a retreat back below $6,000 is quite possible:

“Looking okay here. Rejected at $6,400 and bounced from the $6,050 support (4H level). It might be that we test the highs one more time, take liquidity and then drop towards $5,800 / $5,600. Closing above and I'm targeting $6,600-6,800 as next level.”
