- Last week, crypto proponents witnessed billions of dollars shaved off the entire crypto-economy and many are curious as to where things are headed next. Bitcoin (BTC) jumped back above the $40k handle a few days ago, but then plummeted below the $34k zone on Saturday.

- Akash Girimath, an Fxstreet analyst, says that the price of bitcoin (BTC) currently “hangs between whale accumulation and miners’ woes. Girimath’s outlook is quite grim and bearish, but BTC still has a chance to overcome the losses Girimath says.
- “As grim as it may sound,” Girimath said. “Bitcoin’s price still has room to head higher, at least until $42,000. The bearish thesis put forth by the head-and-shoulders technical pattern will face invalidation if BTC generates a decisive daily candlestick close above the resistance level at $42,000.”
