Our crypto prediction panel remains bearish overall on six popular cryptocurrencies through the week of July 4.

Bitcoin has dropped below the key US$20,000 level at times over the past week, after the latest Federal Reserve rate hike and with increasing worries those moves will lead to recession fueling volatility.

A lasting break below might mean another leg down for the biggest crypto, and this far other cryptos have mostly followed Bitcoin's lead.

Finder's crypto prediction panel turned fully bearish on Bitcoin in the most recent survey looking out through the week of July 4, from slightly bearish.

Finder's cryptocurrency prediction panel comprises 15 experts in the field. Five of them rotate to share their predictions for the following two weeks on six major cryptocurrencies each week.
