- $43,000 might be the local high, but the outlook is gloomy moving ahead.
- Bitcoin has been up 1.88% in the last 24 hours.
According to a new analysis published on April 18, Bitcoin (BTC) is due for a relief bounce, but it still faces a collapse to $30,000 before May. On April 18, data showed BTC/USD hanging around $40,000 as pessimistic forecasts for the pair grew. Due to the Easter holiday, Bitcoin suffered low liquidity after losing $40,000 support overnight into April 18. This was due to the lack of US and European stocks trade.

According to prominent trader Crypto Ed, a near-term drop should bottom out at $37,500 before a comeback starts. “First need to reclaim $40,000; if we manage that, it’ll certainly give a bullish impulse to the market,” he said in his most recent YouTube post.
