Futures trader Peter Brandt, in his statement recently, claimed that the price of Bitcoin (BTC) will “ignite a bull rocket” in 2024, when the market cycles in the past period are examined.

In his new statement, the analyst drew an alternative path. Brandt said that the price of Bitcoin (BTC) may continue its horizontal course for a long time. “BTC price could either sideways for 2 or 3 years or start a 10x bull run.”

Brandt's latest prediction came in response to a long-time Bitcoin (BTC) proponent, Tuur Demeester's statement that "Bitcoin (BTC) price will explode after a long-term sideways move."

Bitcoin (BTC) price has been under pressure for the past few weeks and this week it dropped below $40,000 for the first time since mid-March. Bitcoin price is trading at $41.250 at the time of writing the news. Bitcoin (BTC) price is up 3.4% in the last 24 hours.

However, recently, the correlation between the tech-focused Nasdaq 100 and the BTC price had reached a record high. With the increase of the FED's aggressive attitude, investors started to abandon risky assets. The US dollar index, on the other hand, rose above 100, providing evidence for this. It seems that altcoins are outperforming BTC, with the dominance data of BTC falling by as much as 41%.
