Bitcoin Bottomed in ‘Final Capitulation’ but $5K Dip Likely: Tone Vays

Speaking to traders as BTC/USD recovered from its worst day on record, the trading veteran said he believed markets still needed more pain.

Bitcoin (BTC) likely bottomed when it hit $3,700 this week but will likely dive below $5,000 one more time, says Tone Vays.

In the latest edition of his Trading Bitcoin YouTube series on March 13, the veteran trader described the week of mayhem for Bitcoin which culminated in 60% daily losses as the capitulation he’s been waiting for.

Vays: “All signs point to final capitulation”

Introducing the episode on Twitter, he summarized:

“All Signs Point to this being the final capitulation of the 2 year Bear Market.”

Traditionally conservative about Bitcoin price action, Vays sounded the alarm about potential weakness in BTC/USD in January, warning that there was room for losses below the roughly $10,000 levels seen at the time.

Continuing that line of thought, Vays argued that despite traders’ nightmare week, Friday’s rebound for Bitcoin would not be the final bearish chapter.

“As crazy as it is for me to say, I don’t think there’s been enough pain; I don’t think there’s been enough frustration,” he claimed.

BTC 50% likely to revisit $5,000

Accordingly, Vays set the chances of a fresh dive below $5,000 at 50%, given press time levels of $5,700:

“Do I still think that we are going to fall below $5,000 one more time? The answer is: I actually do.”

Conversely, the chances that BTC/USD had seen its floor this week were much higher — around 90%. Vays would only “panic” if markets hit $1,000, he added.

On the future, the message was simple:

“The final capitulation has happened, the bear market is over, but the road back up will be harder than people realize.”

As Cointelegraph reported, the shock of Bitcoin’s sell-off caught the majority of traders and analysts by surprise. One voice, however, saw it coming — Andreas Antonopoulos argued in January that a huge crash in Bitcoin would be the initial result of global concerns about a recession.

Those concerns remain on traditional markets, as government financial stimulus packages to counter coronavirus panic fail to impress.
