Analyst Says Bitcoin Price Is Headed To $90,000, Here’s Why

Bitcoin is now at a critical junction, which many determine its price trajectory for the rest of the year. The crypto has managed to return into $60,000 territory after dropping down to $56,000 for the first time since April. Some analysts are of the notion that the Bitcoin bulls haven’t actually started on their momentum yet, with many expecting a surge above $74,000 in the coming weeks. 

According to a crypto analyst, impulse waves formed by Bitcoin over the past 1.5 years are indicating that the price of Bitcoin will soon jump to between $90,000 and $100,000. 

Bitcoin To $90,000

A crypto analyst known pseudonymously as TechDev recently shared a Bitcoin price outlook on social media platform X with over 448,000 followers. Interestingly, his analysis is based on Elliot impulse waves, a technical analysis tool that has become extremely popular among crypto analysts when forecasting Bitcoin’s price. 

According to the BTC/US Dollar 2D timeframe shared by the analyst, Bitcoin has been forming impulse waves on an uptrend since May 2023. The chart indicated that the recent correction since Bitcoin reached an all-time high of $73,780 is the fourth impulse wave formation, which is generally known to be a corrective wave. Interestingly, the asset is now at a critical junction after bouncing up at $56,800. 

As noted by the analyst, Bitcoin is set to form its fifth (bullish) impulse wave and go parabolic in the coming months. The first price target is around $90,000 to $100,000 in the short term. The second price target is around the projected peak of the fifth impulse wave, which sits just below $150,000.

TechDev’s analysis is based on a similar five-impulse wave formation in the 2020 to 2021 bull market cycle. A similar fourth impulse wave correction during this period saw Bitcoin falling from $41,000 to $29,000 in early 2021. However, a rebound led to the formation of a fifth (bullish) impulse wave, pushing the price of Bitcoin to its former all-time high. 

What’s Next For Bitcoin Price?

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $63,275 and up by 6% in the past 24 hours. Since the launch of Spot Bitcoin ETFs in the US, Grayscale’s GBTC recorded its first day of inflow, totaling $63 million on May 3. Investors are hopeful and speculating how this might kickstart a new bull run for the cryptocurrency.

According to an analyst, Bitcoin has successfully defended a correction below the 21-day exponential moving average (EMA). The next step is crossing above resistance around $63,488.
