Few analysts have called Bitcoin’s (BTC) recent price action as good as Dave the Wave, a pseudonymous cryptocurrency trader known for being more long-term bullish than bearish.
In the middle of 2019, when everyone was expecting for Bitcoin to explode higher and go parabolic, Dave promoted rationality, saying that this nascent market was clearly overextended. The trader went as far as to say that the price of BTC could hit the $6,000s.
And it did. By December, months after Dave made his original position, BTC had entered the low-$6,000s, trading almost exactly as the analyst predicted.
Dave is back with his latest forecast.

In a tweet published on Thursday, Dave said that he believes Bitcoin’s most likely price trajectory heading into 2020 will be to see a slow bleed back to the $7,000s by March to form a long-term inverse head and shoulders pattern that will most likely mark the macro bottom for years to come.

The recent price decline that Bitcoin has seen since the $14,000 top has been marked by decreasing volume, which he claims is “bullish.” Indeed, falling volumes in a downtrend would indicate that the sellers are gradually losing control.
BTC in December decidedly bounced off the key $6,400 macro support level, which has been a level of utmost importance since early-2018, on high buying volumes.
The block reward reduction for Bitcoin, which will decrease the inflation rate of the cryptocurrency by half, is on the horizon (May 2020). This event has been found to be correlated with upswings in the market.
