14-day crypto predictions: As cryptocurrencies hold steady, sentiment shifts to slightly bullish on Bitcoin

Posted: 9 September 2022 12:47 pm

Our crypto prediction panel turns slightly bearish overall on 6 popular cryptocurrencies through to the week of 19 September.

Bitcoin dropped to $18,500 (£15,894.18), which is a strong support level, but quickly rebounded to $19,500. Macroeconomic factors weigh down on crypto, meaning we could see a continuation of the move lower or we could see prolonged sideways trading until conditions improve for another bull run.

Finder’s crypto prediction panel turned slightly bullish on Bitcoin in the most recent survey looking out through the week of 19 September.

Finder’s cryptocurrency prediction panel comprises 15 experts in the field. 5 of them rotate to share their predictions for the following 2 weeks on 6 major cryptocurrencies each week.

Crypto is unregulated in the UK; there's no consumer protection; value can rise or fall; tax on profits may apply.

The panel’s outlook on Bitcoin (BTC) is slightly bullish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bearish. Bitcoin dropped to $18,500. This is a major price level where we could see a bounce back to $20,000. But if the price fails to hold, $18,000 is the next target.

The panel’s verdict on Ethereum (ETH) is slightly bullish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bearish. Ether trades above $1,600, meaning we could see a move up to $1,750 soon.

The panel’s outlook on Dogecoin (DOGE) is slightly bearish, a change from the week before when it was bearish. DOGE trades at $0.06 after failing to hold $0.075. We could see another attempt at $0.075 in the coming weeks, especially if BTC moves higher. Otherwise, $0.05 is the next target.

The panel’s verdict on Litecoin (LTC) is bearish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bearish. LTC trades below $60 once again. It must break this price level or it will likely drop to $53.

The panel’s outlook on Ripple (XRP) is slightly bearish, a change from the week before when it was bearish. XRP trades at $0.33. The 2 levels to watch are $0.355 and $0.3.

The panel’s verdict on Solana (SOL) is slightly bullish, a change from the week before when it was slightly bearish. SOL bounced off of $30 and it may target $35 next. A break above this price level opens the way toward $40.
