Will Bitcoin Plummet Further?
Despite the present price growth of Bitcoin, traders like Tone Vays still believe Bitcoin will return to $4000 range to achieve the much talked about correction.
However, some are of the opinion that Bitcoin will not retest the $4000 range again since it already did some months back. Veteran trader Peter Brandt is sure any violation of present parabolic phase could result in 80% price drop.
After Bitcoin touched $13,500 few weeks back, it saw around 40 percent correction within few days before embarking on another bull run.
Meanwhile, after this sell order on Binance, it is not clear if there will be more of it. In this case, if such occurs again, it may cause another price plummet.
