Bitcoin Could Dip Towards $9,400 Before Skyrocketing
Bitcoin could drop towards $9,400 before moving back to the upside according to one technical analyst.
The analyst in question shared the chart below on August 27th. It shows that BTC could slide towards the macro supports in the low-$9,000s, then bounce from there into a full-blown bull market.
Although the analyst notes that this scenario is not a certainty, Bitcoin has historically corrected 30-40% lower in bull runs, then proceeded to rally to new macro highs.
“$BTC #Bitcoin High Time Frame plan: Buy the previous resistance and if that fails buy the daily demand retest (see 2016-2017 corrections),” the analyst wrote in regards to BTC’s potential to retest the $9,000s before another leg higher.

Why the Long Term Trend for BTC Remains Positive
Analysts say that the fundamentals ensure the long-term trend of the BTC market remains positively skewed.
Arthur Hayes of BitMEX recently commented that Bitcoin is poised to move higher due to uncertainty in politics and economics:
“The financial markets are going to whipsaw as politicians contort themselves to continue feeding at the trough. This unfortunately will have lasting effects on everyone’s lives across the globe. Out of the chaos, more people will mistrust centralised authority and look for ways to protect their physical persons and capital from the wanton destruction waged upon them by their rulers.”
This optimism was echoed by Raoul Pal. The Real Vision CEO noted that the macroeconomic trends remain skewed in favor in growth of alternative monies and assets that are scarce relative to fiat currencies.
