Experts Express Mixed Reactions Toward Bitcoin Surge

Meanwhile, several experts have expressed mixed reactions towards the largest crypto surge today. Mark Newton, Fundstrat Global technical strategist, advised investors to capitalize on Bitcoin’s current price.

Newton described the present price of the largest cryptocurrency as a great buying opportunity for investors. He said:

“There’s a lot of bearishness, and we should be approaching a time when you really want to buy into that in the next couple of months.”

However, Rick Bensignor president of Bensignor Investment Strategies, predicts that the bearish trend isn’t over. He noted that Bitcoin would not register any major increase anytime soon.

“I’d still expect another four weeks of heaviness. The May 12 low around $25,425 and the bounce from that keeps support intact at $28,900.”

Bensignor said.

On the other hand, Michael Van De Poppe expressed delight with the day rally of the top token. He maintained that the largest cryptocurrency by market cap will sustain this increase and head for 32,000. He said:

“Would be pleased to see #Bitcoin sustain above $30K to avoid another sharp drop. If that sustains, I’m assuming we’ll continue the grind and might end up at $32.8K.”

Ether, Altcoins Rally

Additionally, most altcoins on the day were also well in the green, with Ethereum back above $2,000.
