Analyzing Bitcoin’s 2018 Correction in Order to Predict the Bottom – via beincrypto
The Bitcoin price has been in a long-term correction since reaching $13,880 on June 24, 2019.

Cryptocurrency trader and analyst @altcoinSherpa tweeted a scenario in which the BTC price has yet to reach a bottom. Parallels can be drawn between the current BTC movement and that in April 2018, slightly before the price broke down to reach the $3,300 bottom in December of the same year. If so, the price will soon reach a local high before moving to the downside for the majority of 2020.
