MORE FROM FORBES‘Critical Juncture’-Shock Crypto Price Prediction Revealed As Bitcoin And Ethereum Brace For Volatility

Despite historic growth rates suggesting many major cryptocurrencies could hit fresh all-time highs in coming years, crypto market watchers are uncertain about the short-term outlook.

“Bitcoin sold off hard during the last quarter of 2021, but then during the first frame of 2022, it underwent a period of relatively directionless trading,” Paul Robinson, strategist at DailyFX, said in emailed comments, adding, “typically, once bitcoin gets rolling it doesn’t take long to muster a fresh level of market interest.”

The bitcoin price has swung wildly over the last few months, moving in line with equity markets, as traders come to terms with the Federal Reserve’s increasingly hawkish stance and weigh the economic cost of Russia’s war in Ukraine.

“Contracting price action over the last three months could continue to make things even choppier in the near term, but given the nature of volatility and the fact that this is bitcoin, volatility is likely to ramp up again as we head towards the middle of the year,” said Robinson.
