A widely followed crypto trader claims the uncertainty shrouding Bitcoin’s (BTC) next bull market will be the fuel that ends the bear market.
The pseudonymous crypto analyst Rekt Capital warns their 330,300 Twitter followers that any ‘strong bearish convictions’ may cause them to miss out on the next big bull run.
“People doubting if BTC will experience another Bull Market is exactly what is needed for one to happen
BTC Bull Markets are built on FOMO [fear of missing out]
To FOMO into an uptrend, you need to feel you are missing out
And strong bearish convictions will make you miss out.”
Next, the analyst dives into the psychology of price zones. They use June highs and lows as an example, pointing out that BTC’s June lows are now acting as a resistance level.
“BTC June lows were once a support
Now June lows are acting as resistance
In terms of psychology, people were willing to buy at June lows
But now people are much more willing to sell at June lows
How things have changed within a few months.”
Seemingly advising their followers to be patient, Rekt says that, historically speaking, Bitcoin bear market bottoms take months to settle.
“Typical BTC Bear Market bottoms tend to take months to develop before a new macro uptrend begins
Capitulating into an absolute generational bottom is one thing
The extended consolidation that follows is another.”
To illustrate their point about bear market bottoms, capitulation, and consolidation, the trader also shares a long-term Bitcoin chart they first shared back in June.
“According to the Three Macro Triangles, BTC is now in the Downtrend Acceleration phase in an effort to form a generational bottom.”
