Our crypto prediction panel moved from slightly bearish to bearish on three popular cryptocurrencies.

Despite inflation fears, the war in Ukraine and Biden's executive order on crypto rulemaking, Bitcoin has yet to find the catalyst to push its price past the US$45,000 level on the upside or break below US$35,000 on the downside.

The US Federal Reserve this week is expected to result in an interest-rate hike, which could provide a catalyst. But that move has been telegraphed for weeks and may be priced in.

Finder's crypto prediction panel remains slightly bullish on Bitcoin but turned bearish on Dogecoin, Ripple and Litecoin in the most recent survey looking out through the week of March 28.

Finder's cryptocurrency prediction panel is made up of 15 experts in the field. Each week, five of them rotate to share their predictions for the following two weeks on six major cryptocurrencies.

Finder's experts kept their slightly bearish sentiment overall

The previous week saw our panel of experts turn slightly bearish, a sentiment kept this week with minor shifts in three cryptocurrencies from slightly bearish to bearish.
