Similar to other popular analysts, nevertheless, Brandt has a positive view of Bitcoin in the long-term. Like Brandt, another popular crypto trader, using the Twitter handle @Dilutionproof has forecast that $46,000 would be a crucial support level for BTC/USD.
#Bitcoin broke through its support zone at ~$53k (~$1T market cap) last night
Looking at the on-chain volume profile, ~$47k is the next large support zone, which coincides with the 🐳-version of the on-chain profile (~$45k-$48k) and a Fibonacci zone (~$46.8k) pic.twitter.com/R7SNI6z2n5

Basically, there are several crucial support levels to look for. This includes bids from large-volume traders (whales) and investors, in addition to Fibo levels. So, it won’t be easy for the bears to push Bitcoin downwards.

Philip Swift, an analyst at trading suite Decentrader was in approval of the latest analysis. He said “I have also observed on the blockchain a lot of on-chain buying volume around $47-49K, which I expect to act as very strong support should we even get down to those price levels.”
“In addition, we are continuing to see big increases in the number of users on the Bitcoin blockchain, which is also bullish. So, while there has been a lot of fear on social media this week, I do not believe that there is a need to panic or be overly concerned about the price of Bitcoin right now.”
As per data provided by Glassnode, the quantum of Bitcoins deposited to exchanges in the past 24 hours was greater than any time since the March 2020 crypto market crash. Rekt Capital, another popular crypto analyst, has pointed out that the pattern is a regular one that was seen in several Bitcoin bull market.
The beginning of the Q2 price correction, happening about 80 days after the completion of the Q1 price correction which started at $42,000, is identical to the scenario that happened during the 2017 bull rally.
In 2017, a new #Bitcoin Bull Market correction would often occur ~50 days after the previous correction ended
Interestingly, the difference in amount of days between the 2017 Q1 & Q2 corrections was 79 days

As Bitcoin faces sell off, altcoins are getting dragged down, but the trend may be short-lived. Swift has picked Ether (ETH) after the largest altcoin by market capitalization recorded fresh all-time peak this week. In general, altcoins may see another round of buying by investors who may regard Bitcoin as a costly asset.
He stated “Given the influx of new money entering the market and new entrants perceiving Bitcoin as ‘too expensive,’ I am expecting money to flow into altcoins.”
“That would cause Bitcoin dominance to drop for a period of time as certain alts outperform Bitcoin.”
Interestingly, Bitcoin’s market dominance fell below 50% for the first time since 2018.
