McGlone eyeing ‘sustainable bull market bottom’
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows that BTC price has regained the $35,000 mark as analysts forecast a fresh bull run.
In a tweet on June 9, Mike McGlone, senior commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, argued that Bitcoin would soon return to $40,000 rather than continue to fall to $20,000 – its all-time high. 2017.
“Bitcoin surrendering? $40,000 is more likely than $20,000,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Bitcoin’s drop on June 8 and its return to support in the lower range around $30,000 have many signs of extreme bearish sentiment, which marks a sustained bull market bottom. “
McGlone emphasized that Bitcoin has already hit its 20-week moving average providing similar bottom signals through March 2020 – the peak of the COVID-19-induced market crash.
Moving averages continue to play an important part in where BTC price is headed next.
Bitcoin is no longer a “speculative cryptocurrency”

For McGlone, however, El Salvador’s announcement, which first appeared at the Miami convention last week, marks a clear turning point.
