BTC price due $55.4K next amid warnings over end of Bitcoin ‘euphoria’

Bitcoin (BTC) is on the way to $55,000 this week — but warnings of a new bear market are already surfacing.

In his latest analysis on X (formerly Twitter) on Feb. 14, popular trader Titan of Crypto confirmed a $55,400 BTC price target next.

BTC price: Ichimoku analysis points higher

Bitcoin bulls continue to fight for the road toward all-time highs, with resistance around $52,000 currently forming the battleground.

Titan of Crypto, capturing overall market sentiment, suggested that “extremely bullish momentum” could take BTC/USD another 6% higher in the coming week.

Uploading a weekly chart including Ichimoku Cloud data, he outlined one more upside target left to hit, with two already achieved.

“Both target 1 & 2 have been hit but $50,900 is a strong level. If Bitcoin manage to close a weekly candle above, target 3 at $55.4k is next,” part of the accompanying commentary stated.

“Note that given the extremely bullish momentum target 3 has high chance to get hit even before the end of the week.”

As Cointelegraph reported, Ichimoku currently shows a rare bullish setup on weekly timeframes, with BTC price now clearing major resistance features.

Trader cautions over “unhinged greed” coming to Bitcoin

Looking ahead, however, concerns over a potentially “overheated” market are leading to BTC price downside predictions.

In a lengthy X post, trader and analyst Credible Crypto warned that even if existing all-time highs are exceeded and BTC/USD passes $100,000, the odds of a snap correction are increasing.

This, he says, represents natural market dynamics — despite heavy inflows into the spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs), nothing can remain in “up only” mode indefinitely.

“At the end of the day, for every major parabolic rise there is a major crash, and vice versa,” he wrote.

“You don’t get unhinged greed and euphoria (and the vertical price appreciation that comes with it) without an equal and opposite reaction when that euphoria peaks.”

Credible Crypto referenced another post by trader and YouTuber TXMC Trades, who earlier told readers not to trust in ETF inflows propelling Bitcoin higher ad infinitum.

Others also maintain an air of caution over BTC price strength. For Michaël van de Poppe, founder and CEO of MN Trading, the market is already “slightly overheated.”

“I wouldn’t be unhappy if we got a slight correction to return to reality,” he concluded on the day.
