A Bitcoin Price Dip To $13k Or Correction Is Highly Likely — History Says So

A Bitcoin Price Dip To $13k Or Correction Is Highly Likely -- History Says So

The 7-week consecutive rally may be halted before Bitcoin makes an astounding run to new all-time highs. The leading cryptocurrency made a sharp price retraction after hitting $18,000 a few days ago. The bears were quick to initiate a price correction but the bulls took control over the market and have since kept Bitcoin within the $18k zone. Particularly $18,639 at the time of this report. Staying range bound within $18,000 can be beneficial for Bitcoin,

This is according to Vijay Boyapati, whose response to the price dip suggests that historical patterns might play out once again, as it did in 2016. But note that this dip will only be temporary and could role Bitcoin back up. 

According to Vijay ; 

“At this stage in the 2016 #bitcoin bull market cycle, the price dropped about 29%, which in today’s terms would be a fall to a bit below $13,000.

Is it possible we have a correction like this before taking the all-time high? Yes.”

“However… This cycle is clearly being driven more by institutions who generally have much stronger hands than retail buyers. For instance, MicroStrategy has stated their purchase of #Bitcoin is a long term allocation – those bitcoins have been taken off the order book indefinitely.” 

He continues to explain that Bitcoin is now in the court of institutional investors who have the patience to wait through mild bear trends as their expected investment returns are massive.

This “asymmetrical bet,” could help ease volatility and stir a price correction in the near term, but he didn’t fail to add that the impact of institutional investors could change the market dynamics for Bitcoin. He concludes that Bitcoin will get a lot of mainstream media attention and as we know, mainstream media can influence the narrative for Bitcoin and aid the cryptocurrency’s price.

Let’s not forget that Bitcoin’s market cap just hit a new all-time high. The $350 billion market valuation has never been recorded in Bitcoin’s history until recently. The closest to this record was Bitcoin’s bullish rise above $300 Billion back in January 2018, market cap would go downhill from there in July of the same year, as Bitcoin’s price declined simultaneously.

The infamous 2019 Bitcoin dip below $5,000 saw its market cap slump below $50 billion, its lowest point. But as price surges, the market cap is expected to go off the roof.
