Peter Brandt says key BTC pattern is forming

Earlier today, savvy old-school trader Peter Brandt, who specializes in commodity trading, took to Twitter to share with the community that he had detected an important pattern forming on a Bitcoin chart.

Brandt tweeted about a pattern called a "pennant" or a "flag." He said that it has short-term bearish implications. These patterns are often utilized by traders for predicting future movements of an asset on the market.

In this particular case, according to Brandt, if this pattern plays out, Bitcoin may continue declining.
