What’s new? On May 11, analyst Peter Brandt recorded a “head and shoulders” pattern on the bitcoin price chart, which may indicate a trend reversal in the downward direction. According to the expert, the figure “should be taken seriously,” because its formation, which is usually followed by the fall of the rate, has already been fully completed. As of May 11, 11:30 UTC, BTC is trading at $27 448 on Binance, having fallen by 0,57% during the day and by 6,2% during the week, according to aggregator CoinGecko.

Analyst’s previous predictions. Brand suggested in January that BTC could rise above $30 000 by the second quarter within the “inverse head and shoulders” pattern, indicating the potential end of the downtrend, and also said that the first cryptocurrency had reached the bottom, after which growth above $25 000 is possible.

In March, the expert predicted that BTC would reach new historical highs within a year. In February, he found similarities on the BTC price chart with the events of 2019. According to Brandt, significant patterns for the first cryptocurrency – “price walls” – also were formed then.
