Analyst Notes: Cryptocurrency analyst Michael Van de Poppe points out that Bitcoin is currently forming a clear range. 

The resistance level to keep an eye on is $38,000, while for long entries, it is important to monitor the support level ranging from $33,000 to $34,500.According to his analysis, Bitcoin is expected to move slightly lower, possibly dipping just below $36,000. “Needs to hold the trend.”

Pseudonymous analyst Dave the Wave said that BTC’s current all-time high could see a new surge.

“Shorter-term volatility is always the most difficult to predict. Brace yourselves for this one. Even though daily momentum is down, weekly BTC momentum is still up. Technically, a push to the highs is possible, and with price still in the LGC buy zone [for longer-term investors].”

Santiment, a leading firm in on-chain data analytics for the crypto market, on Sunday, said that crypto market caps have experienced a temporary slowdown following the significant 4-week rallies.
