In a recent tweet, veteran commodity trader Peter Brandt writes that the menacing head-and-shoulders pattern, which has formed on Bitcoin’s four-hour chart, could end up failing.

Earlier today, Bitcoin plunged to $58,000, its lowest level since Oct. 15. The sudden plunge has stoked fears of another bear market.

The top cryptocurrency is down 13.3% from its all-time high of $67,000 that was reached on Oct. 20.

The ominous head-and-shoulder formation appeared after buyers failed to gain ground above the $63,000 resistance level and retain the most recent peak.

If the current run ends up exhausting itself, Brandt expects a larger congestion pattern to form.
