Brandt has come up with bad predictions for the world’s largest cryptocurrency.
Peter Brandt, a popular veteran futures trader who has been outspoken about cryptocurrency market conditions and prices, has done a negative analysis of the world’s largest digital currency by market capitalization, Bitcoin (BTC).
Brandt made a prediction earlier today that Bitcoin could fall as low as $12,700 in the near future unless the asset class closes above the May 31 high, when BTC surged to $32,206.
The veteran futures trader said in a tweet:
“Unless Bitcoin $BTC can close above the May 31 high, this chart could become a textbook example of the famed “Drano” chart pattern.”

“Following rising inflation in the United States, many crypto traders have expressed concerns that U.S. authorities may introduce more stringent measures to mitigate inflation levels in the country.
