Bitcoin price movement could be boosted by BlackRock approval

A popular cryptocurrency analyst and trader has predicted that there will be less pullback in the Bitcoin price action. However, he warned that the markets could drop sharply if one of the scenarios plays out.

On July 5, trader and analyst Josh Rager shared his thoughts on the movement and trajectory of the Bitcoin price. He said he disagrees with the current widely accepted notion that BTC prices will return to around $24,000 again.

That sentiment about a $24,000 correction was very popular, Rager said, but “people are overthinking it.”

He added that “the pullbacks are not going to be that deep now” before saying that if BTC gets back to $25,000 again, “it won’t be until later in the year after more rally before that.”

However, he warned that the SEC’s rejection of the BlackRock spot BTC application could cause more pain.

“Only the ETF’s rejection can cause pain but I think BlackRock got the nod this time.”

“A revisit below $30,000 is out of the question,” he said, but remained optimistic adding, “I’m inclined to be more bullish before a big pullback.”

Gains are likely to be made if BlackRock gets approval, which Rager saw as a “real possibility” by August.

“The markets will do what they will do but the current bitcoin fundamentals are hard to beat.”
