14-day crypto predictions: Very bullish on Bitcoin, slightly bullish on Dogecoin and Ripple
Our crypto prediction panel turns slightly bullish overall on six popular cryptocurrencies through the week of April 18.
After Bitcoin made the push to US$48,000, it pulled back to again test the US$45,000 zone. This is now the price support where more people consider this price a bargain and will likely file more buy orders than sell. If Bitcoin holds this price level, more gains await in the weeks to come.
Finder's crypto prediction panel turned very bullish on Bitcoin and bullish on Ethereum and Solana in the most recent survey looking out through the week of April 18.
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 turn slightly bullish overall
Our experts turned slightly bullish from neutral on six popular cryptocurrencies. We don't have a single cryptocurrency out of the six with a bearish sentiment for the first time in the past few months.
Where our crypto prediction panel stands
|This week||Last week|
|Dogecoin||Slightly bullish||Slightly bearish|
|XRP||Slightly bullish||Slightly bearish|
The panel's outlook on Bitcoin (BTC) is very bullish, a change from the week before when it was bullish. The price of Bitcoin pulled back from the US$48,000 level, which coincides with the EU parliament passing rules that outlaw anonymous crypto transactions.
The panel's verdict on Ethereum (ETH) is bullish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bullish. After bouncing off the US$3,500 price level, the price pulled back to US$3,200, a strong support zone. To make new highs, Ether has to break through the US$3,500 level.
The panel's outlook on Dogecoin (DOGE) is slightly bullish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bearish. DOGE had a strong push to US$0.175, but it quickly pulled back to US$0.15. The latter is a strong support level and if the price stays above it, we may see another run to US$0.17 soon.
The panel's prediction on Litecoin (LTC) is neutral, a change from the week before when it was slightly bearish. LTC moved similar to Bitcoin, but it made minor gains above US$125 before pulling back to US$120.
The panel's outlook on Ripple (XRP) is slightly bullish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bearish. XRP failed to break the US$0.9 level and fell below US$0.8. We need to see the price push above US$0.9 and hold there to open the way for more gains.
The panel's verdict on Solana (SOL) is bullish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bullish. Solana pushed through US$125 and moved higher, but it failed to keep the gains for now. However, the price trades above multiple moving averages, which is often a bullish sign.
Finder's experts hold long-term bullish sentiment on Bitcoin
Finder asked 33 fintech specialists in January to offer price predictions for Bitcoin by year's end. The majority predict Bitcoin will reach all-time highs at the end of 2022.
