In a recent CNBC survey of a group of portfolio managers and equity strategists, enkel en alleen 6% of respondents expect Bitcoin (BTC) to reach $60,000 in 2021. A large portion, 44% van de deelnemers, predict Bitcoin to remain below $30,000 dit jaar. From the remaining, 25% expect the recovery to reach $45,000 and the rest 25% anticipate a move to $55,000.

This suggests that the sentiment remains negative. Echter, the recent Chinese crackdown on crypto miners or the regulatory actions have failed to trigger the next leg of the downtrend in Bitcoin. This indicates that smart money is not panicking but bottom fishing on dips.

Analyst Willy Woo recently said in an interview on the What Bitcoin Did podcast that long-term holders who had sold their Bitcoin earlier this year are slowly accumulating at lower levels. Woo added that on-chain data suggests that Bitcoin is in recovery.

According to sources of news outlet The Street, Billionaire Steven Cohen’s hedge fund Point72 Asset Management is hunting for a “head of crypto” to enter the crypto sector. This suggests that institutional investors are viewing the current dip as an entry opportunity.

With crypto markets in a state of recovery, let’s study the charts of the top five cryptocurrencies that have a good shot at leading the relief rally.

BTC / USDT

If buyers thrust the price above the 50-day SMA, the BTC/USDT pair could rally to the overhead resistance zone at $41,330 naar $42,451.67. De beren zullen deze zone waarschijnlijk agressief verdedigen. Als de prijs daalt van deze weerstand, the pair may extend its range-bound action for a few more days.

In tegenstelling tot deze veronderstelling, if the price turns down from the 50-day SMA and breaks below $32,700, the bears will again try to sink the pair below $31,000. Als ze slagen, the next stop could be the critical support at $28,000.
