Analyst Notes: Pseudonymous analyst “Rekt Capital” observed that when Bitcoin breaks a certain market trend line, it usually leads to an uptrend. However, in 2015 there was a retest before the uptrend. If Bitcoin dips in April or May, it may be one of the last times it goes below $25,000 for a while.

Based on the chart provided by ‘Altcoin Sherpa’, Bitcoin appears to have broken out of a descending triangle pattern and is currently on an upward trend. The analyst has placed a price target of $36,000 for Bitcoin.

According to analyst Jason Pizzino, Bitcoin is showing signs of being in the final phase of the accumulation schematic. This suggests that Bitcoin is preparing for a period of price rises. Pizzino notes that confirmation of this phase may take one or two more weeks on the chart, and it will most likely happen if Bitcoin breaks above the 50% level, which is around $42,000. However, Pizzino also cautions that Bitcoin still needs to test the low to mid-$30,000 range before moving higher. Overall, while the accumulation phase is coming to an end, it hasn’t quite arrived yet.
