Popular cryptocurrency analysts see Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) rising further even as the apex cryptocurrency retreated after charting all-time highs this week.
What Happened: Kaleo, a pseudonymous technical analyst, told his more than 409,000 followers on Twitter that users may miss out on huge profits if Bitcoin’s “one last dip” at the $65,288 range frightened them.

Amsterdam-based popular cryptocurrency analyst Michaël van de Poppe dismissed speculation that Bitcoin was entering a bear market. Instead, he believes that the cryptocurrency is at the beginning of a massive second run of the current bull cycle.
No, we’re not entering a bear market.
We’re at the start of a massive second run of this bull cycle.

Justin Bennett, a cryptocurrency analyst and trader with more than 82,000 Twitter followers, noted that while Bitcoin’s Thursday closing below $64,000 might result in a “few days of pain,” the cryptocurrency could next find support in the $58,000 to $60,000 range.
Probably a few days of pain for $BTC given Thursday’s close below $64,000.
$58k – $60k is the next key support area.
