Veteran Trader Peter Brandt Asks Macro Guru If Bitcoin Bull Has Finally Awoken From Deep Slumber

After surpassing $45,000, Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) has now soared past the $47,000 mark, marking a 16% increase since Jim Cramer’s Jan. 22 tweet that it is “unlikely to find its footing.”

Analysts see potential for further gains ahead of the halving.

What Happened: Bitcoin continues to race higher, defying Cramer’s prediction on Jan. 22 when prices were around $40,600. This surge even surprised technical analysts like Michael van de Poppe:

To be fair, I’m positively surprised with the current strength on #Bitcoin.

Already at $46,500.

It seems likely we’re looking for the liquidity above the highs and perhaps the one above $51,800 pre-halving.

The markets are strong. Dips of 20% on #Bitcoin are a buy.

The Super Trend just flashed a buy signal on the #Bitcoin monthly chart, a tool known for its precision in predicting $BTC bull markets.

The four buy signals it has issued since #BTC inception have all been validated, leading to gains of 169,172%, 9,900%, 3,680%, and 828%,…
