Not every analyst expects a rise
Bitcoin’s surge above $ 49,000 could enable it to test its all-time high in the near future, but veteran analyst Peter Brandt thinks that is not certain when it comes to the cryptocurrency market.
According to ExoAlpha chief investment officer David Lifchitz, it is “too early to tell if Bitcoin’s withdrawal is over,” but $ 44,500 appears to provide a strong support.
On whether the best cryptocurrency could hit new heights in March, Lifchitz said that BTC is generally expected to drop this month.
According to Lifchitz, part of the shares could be sold to pay taxes on profits realized during these tax months in the US, which could put downward pressure on the market.
