© Reuters. Bitcoin Breaks Below $20,000: Analyst Say ‘Panic Could Be Massive,’ Predicts Lower Price Target
On Saturday, (CRYPTO: BTC) broke below $20,000 for the first time since December 2020. One analyst has been anticipating the breakdown and says things could get worse from here.
What Happened: The pseudonymous crypto analyst Capo has been predicting that the overall cryptocurrency market will see a downfall in the coming days and Bitcoin’s fall below $20,000 will trigger panic in the market.
If $BTC breaks the $20k level, panic could be massive. Many people have stop losses below this level. Many others think it can’t break the 2017 ATH because it hasn’t happened before… It could easily reach 16k-18k if 20k breaks.
What is the current Celsius liq. price btw?

Earlier this week, Capo said that Bitcoin had not bottomed out yet.
Seeing some bottoms calls here. Honestly, this is one of the clearest fake pumps that we have seen until now.
In my opinion, the 20k level won’t hold for long. We haven’t seen proper capitulation yet, and there are no bullish signs.
I remain out of the market.

Earlier in April, he mentioned that Bitcoin would see 50% retracement, and the overall crypto market would fall even more.
