14-day crypto predictions: As FTX collapse effects linger, sentiment shifts to bearish on Bitcoin


Our crypto prediction panel turns bearish overall on six popular cryptocurrencies through the week of November 28.

Bitcoin dropped to US$16,000, a new low for the year, following the collapse of one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges — FTX. Macroeconomic factors still weigh heavily on riskier assets and the weakness in crypto is likely to last until the Federal Reserve policy starts to shift.

Finder's crypto prediction panel turned bearish on Bitcoin in the most recent survey looking out through the week of November 28.

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.

The panel's outlook on Bitcoin (BTC) is bearish, a change from the week before when it was neutral. Bitcoin trades at new lows. Its current support level stands at US$16,000. A break of this level opens the way down to US$15,000.

The panel's verdict on Ethereum (ETH) is bearish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bullish. Ether trades at US$1,200. Its current major support level sits at US$1,000.

The panel's outlook on Dogecoin (DOGE) is bearish, the same as the week before. DOGE trades at US$0.09. Following the broader crypto crash, DOGE failed to hold above US$0.1. Now US$0.075 is DOGE's support level.

The panel's verdict on Litecoin (LTC) is bearish, the same as the week before. LTC trades above US$55. Its major resistance level stands at US$60 now and its support is at US$50.

The panel's outlook on Ripple (XRP) is bearish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bearish. XRP trades at US$0.37 after it dropped below US$0.3. Its current price is near a strong support level, meaning it could hold for now.

The panel's verdict on Solana (SOL) is bearish, a change from the week before when it was neutral. SOL trades at US$14. Solana was one supported by FTX, which is why it was hit the hardest by the exchange's collapse. US$13 is the support now. A break lower opens the way to US$7.
