In explaining his cautious outlook, Bollinger pointed out that “aggressive traders can consider shorting”, which in turn may push the price of bitcoin down in the next trading day.

“Hodlers can watch [to] If we see them, please add a lower level. There is no confirmation yet, please stay alert. “

Can Bitcoin reach $41,000?

The statement appears as Bitcoin undergoes a correction After regaining a three-month high of $50,505. In doing so, the cryptocurrency fell 6.70% to $47,122, indicating a strong bearish sentiment near the $50,000 price zone.
