Bitcoin (BTC) may not crash under $30,000 and rather jump to $100,000 prior to sweeping its lows.
That was the point of popular trader Credible Crypto, who, on May 2, shared an updated view of how BTC price action might unfold.

Trader prepares for lows to be “left untapped”
For a reliable Crypto, however, the twoofakind could evenly surprise the market but keep going on its bull run to new all-time highs and even six figures.
The acumen lies in historical context. In preceding years, for example in 2019, Bitcoin succeeded in reverting to the upside when the market expected a capitulation event. It only swept the expected lows much after as for example in March 2020 following looking a macro top, and as such, over there is any bounds to trust that this time could be similar.
In a video using Elliott Waves, Credible Crypto thus mapped out a move to a new macro top of between $100,000 and $200,000 for BTC/USD before a drawdown which could take liquidity at $30,000 or under.
“These lows that have built up — we don’t have to take them now; we could very well continue up for the fifth wave,” he explained.
He added that there was “nothing wrong” with expecting a sweep of the lows after November 2021’s all-time highs.
“But again, based on market context and everything else that I’ve seen, I think that’s a little bit more unlikely; I think it’s a lot more likely that we leave these lows untapped and simply continue up.”
Capitulation “may not occur”
That same conclusion formed the basis of research by on-chain analytics platform CryptoQuant on May 3.

Analyzing decreasing inflows to exchanges, one contributor to CryptoQuant’s Quicktake series argued that traders were not readying themselves for a “capitulation” and wave of selling.
Inflows “dropped sharply” after January this year, while outflows continued an increasing trend.
“Therefore, if the market continues to trend as severely as the media forecasts in general, and no terrible events are happening unexpectedly (unpredictable), the crab can be repeated, but the capitulation may not occur,” the contributor summarized.
