What’s new? Cryptocurrency analyst Michaël van de Poppe has allowed the possibility of bitcoin to recover from its recent decline. The prediction is based on the fact that BTC is facing negative funding, which “we’ll be having a bounce play soon.” The analyst expects bullish divergences to form in the $26 500-$27 000 area on April 24 — a date he called a “dump day” — and then the rate’s recovery to $29 200.

Prediction details. The moment funding turns negative, traders with short positions on BTC pay those who have opened long positions, which usually indicates a change in market sentiment.

Van de Poppet also noted that bitcoin has corrected after filling the price gap on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) and is returning to resistance for the second time. Should bitcoin break through the $27 800-$28 000 levels in the next few days, the next mark could be $29 200.

On April 21, Van de Poppe said that bitcoin was showing weakness and could break the critical $27 800 support level. At the same time, on April 6, the analyst predicted the growth of the rate of BTC to $50 000 in the coming months. He pointed out that the crypto market capitalization is above the 200-week exponential moving average (EMA) and the 200-week moving average (MA).
