Crypto Analyst Michaël van de Poppe Anticipates Altcoin Rebound After “Depression Phase”

In a recent update to his 666,000 followers on the social media platform X, crypto analyst Michaël van de Poppe has shared his optimistic outlook for altcoins, suggesting that they are poised to rebound after what he calls a prolonged “depression phase” marked by persistently low prices.

Van de Poppe points to the growing interest in crypto exchange-traded funds (ETFs) as a significant indicator of strength in the digital asset market. He notes that the applications for various crypto ETFs are on the rise, signaling potential upward momentum for altcoins.

He emphasizes, “Altcoins are in their depression phase and are ready to start trending upwards. It might sound repetitive, but for most of the altcoins, the lows might be in or close to in.”

Comparing the current market sentiment to the Wall Street Cheat Sheet, a chart that tracks psychological phases in volatile market cycles, Van de Poppe suggests that the crypto market is currently in the “depression phase,” characterized by extreme lows in prices.

The analyst anticipates that this phase will be followed by a “disbelief” phase, during which prices start to recover, albeit with many market participants remaining skeptical.

Turning his attention to Bitcoin (BTC), Van de Poppe predicts a potential price breakout from the range between $24,500 and $26,800. He advises caution to traders within this range, cautioning that it may persist for a few more weeks, possibly ending with a fake-out before the actual move occurs.

Van de Poppe clarifies his trading strategy, stating, “If we break above $26,800, I’ll be a massive buyer. If we drop to $24,500-25,000, I’ll be a massive buyer.”

At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at $25,873, with the crypto community closely watching for any signs of a breakout or further price consolidation soon. As the crypto market continues to evolve, investors and analysts like Michaël van de Poppe remain vigilant, seeking opportunities amidst the volatility.
