Bloomberg Analyst: Bitcoin more likely to hit $100K than $20K in 2021

Bloomberg senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone stated that Bitcoin is now “stronger, greener and less extended” than during the height of the rally in April. This he revealed in Bloomberg’s June edition of Galaxy Crypto Index report. Citing unnecessary focus on Bitcoin energy usage and Chinese restriction as main reason for May correction, Mr. McGlone believes that Bitcoin is more likely to reach the six figure region that going down to $20k.

“In 2020, 260-day volatility dropped to its lowest ever vs. most major asset classes, notably the S&P 500. Add last year’s supply cut, the migration to institutional portfolios, Ethereum futures and the launch of ETFs in Canada and Europe, and we see greater potential for Bitcoin to head toward $100,000 than sustain below $20,000.”

Weakened Institutional Demand to Drag Bitcoin Price Further Down, Says JP Morgan Strategist

JPMorgan strategist and Bitcoin expert Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou believes that a weakened institutional demand is likely to pull down the Bitcoin price below $30,000.

Due to Bitcoin’s volatility, Panigirtzoglou noted that a fair value for Bitcoin in the medium term would be between $24k to $36k

“The longer-term signal remains problematic, as it has yet to turn short. It would still take price declines to the $26k level before longer-term momentum would signal capitulation.”
