Commodity trading veteran Peter Brandt predicts that the BTC price could be heading $50,000 in the long-term.

However, before starting its next trip to the moon, the top coin will first bottom out at $5,500.

Bitcoin Price Might Pull Off Short-Term Recovery

A wild card

While Bitcoin represents one of the most unpredictable markets (mostly because of nascence), Brandt has been remarkably spot-on with many of his sought-after predictions He particularly predicted that the BTC would be heading south after reaching its current all-time high in December 2017.

Back in April, he suggested that Bitcoin had entered its next parabolic phase before the coin went from $5,000 to nearly $14,000 in the span of a few months.

He reiterated his bullish call in September, but the great descending triangle resolving downwards has turned the tables in favor of the bears.
