$20k Bitcoin is next after hitting $52k, Gareth Soloway's target

Kitco News

After retracing to the upside of $52,000 a few weeks ago, what Gareth Soloway, chief market strategist called a “retrace to the scene of the crime,” Bitcoin slid back down, reaching $43,600 on Monday.

Soloway had previously called the top of $52,000, which was then the neckline of a head and shoulders pattern.

Now, he is calling for a pullback to even lower levels, as low as $18,000 to $20,000 a coin, before a bounce back.

The exception to this would be if Bitcoin tops $65,000, breaking the previous all-time high; only then, would upside momentum be confirmed, Soloway told David Lin, anchor for Kitco News.

“We’re seeing a follow-through today. We haven’t really taken out the low-pivot from that down day, that’s the technical level I’m watching right now. If that gets taken out, then you’re likely going down to the $40,000 to $41,000 level right here, and then all the way down to $30,000. You guys know my longer-term projections…eventually you’re going to get to the $18,000 to $20,000 marker on Bitcoin,” he said.

On the stock markets, it’s unlikely the S&P 500 will make new highs from here for the foreseeable future, Soloway said.

“One of the big technical things here is that this market has for the first time, since March of 2020, when the low was put in, it has made a lower low. That is a fundamental change in the trend of the market,” he said.
