Popular crypto trader and analyst Michaël van de Poppe recently gave an update on Bitcoin’s next price move, telling followers BTC may have hit its bottom for now. 

Speaking in a recent YouTube video, Van de Poppe claimed bitcoin had likely hit its relative bottom following last week’s price pullback to $44,000. The crypto trader predicted BTC would bounce above $50,000 in the ensuing rally. 

According to the Daily HODL, he said:

This recent low at $44,000 got tested again and we bounced up, which means that we’re probably going to get buy pressure from this entire green zone here. So we might be getting into a temporary low phase in which we construct such a pattern.

Van de Poppe predicted the bounceback would result in a run towards $54,000 in the coming weeks, followed by some stagnation and another price dip. Ultimately, the popular trader said Bitcoin would “continue moving” in a bullish direction in the long-term. 

Despite having a positive outlook for BTC, Van de Poppe warned followers support for Bitcoin could breakdown during another price dip, leading BTC to plummet an additional 20 percent. 

He explained: 

“If we can’t hold this level that we just discussed, we can’t break up, and we can’t hold $45,000, I’m going to look at $37,000 to $40,000.”

The prolific trader was also bullish on Ethereum, but noted its chart looked worse than Bitcoin in the short-term. He said ETH had established a critical resistance zone at $1,500, but could make a push towards $1,700 – $1,800.
