Although the analyst is suggesting a long position on Bitcoin, he is also expecting major market corrections after completing the wave count. Per the analyst, Bitcoin is set to start on another wave count if it completes the final wave. However, the newer descending wave count will result from brutal market corrections and Bitcoin is expected to fall. From a high of $70,000, Bitcoin can be expected to fall to $60,000 or even lower.

In light of the recent market retracements, not all analysts are bullish on the king of cryptocurrencies. Analyst Euro Motif is not optimistic about Bitcoin and believes the market corrections are to last for a while. The analyst has set a price target at the 2.618 Fibonacci level, which lies parallel to the price level of $49,351. In his Bitcoin price prediction, the analyst has pointed out a descending wave count, which can lead the cryptocurrency to even lower price levels. Per the analyst, Bitcoin is developing the final wave C of the wave count. The analyst has also pointed out that Bitcoin is operating in a dangerous zone.

Institution still driving Bitcoin price

The cryptocurrency market has been garnering increasing interest, especially from institutions. The four primary institutional investors in cryptocurrencies are banks, asset managers, leveraged money and other firms. Bitcoin, being the market leader, is at the forefront of institutional interest. Interestingly, the growth rate of Bitcoin futures interest rate compared with the price growth of the cryptocurrency. While the Bitcoin price predictions are also coming in positive for higher growth.

The open interest and the capital tied in the future contracts have grown exponentially. Recent movements in the long-shot breakdown suggest a move towards a long position, indicating possible bullish momentum for Bitcoin. Goldman Sachs has also revealed that it will include Bitcoin futures in its offering because of client demand. Bitcoin futures open interest can be expected to continue to rise as interest in the asset climbs up.
