As per several recent forecasts made on Crypto Twitter, the Bitcoin price was on the one hand expected to start ascending. On the other hand, a chance remained that the father crypto would decline.

The bears are taking over

Still, the same analysts allowed for a chance that the bears would take a lead of the market and the price would dump.

As per data from the BitMEX, in the fall 2018, the BTC price tanked around 40 percent after a week’s rise, similar to what the market has seen recently. Judging by the data, the same could happen this time round too.

Presently, Bitcoin is trading at $7,984, the lowest mark since late October, as commented by Mati Greenspan in his newsletter.
