Investors Would Look to Buy the Dip
Peter Brandt, a veteran trader, tweeted on May 22 that he believes the price of Bitcoin will go below $26,800. Bitcoin’s price will resume its upward trend after the downturn. He has previously advocated buying Bitcoin in the “long” position and set a $40,000 price goal for Bitcoin.

On-chain data and technical indications indicated to an impending collapse in Bitcoin price, which was also highlighted by other experts. If the price of bitcoin drops, that’s a chance for investors to purchase. For those who claim to disagree and who now see no negative risks in the BTC price, he issued a caution.
The veteran trader stated:
“Perhaps one more shake out break, then thrust higher. But hey, that’s just a guess, and guessing is the best we have to offer. If anyone is dogmatic about their brilliance, turn and run, protecting your wallet.”
Bitcoin right now is trading at $26,803 and is down 1% in the last 24 hours as per data from CoinMarketCap.
