VeChain At Risk Of Further Losses? VET Price Drops 30% In Downtrend

The crypto market continues on its downtrend, and VeChain (VET) follows after expiring some relief over the last weekend. The cryptocurrency recently breached a major level of support and seems poised to expand its downside price action. Related Reading | Fed Announces Inflation Warnings As Bitcoin Whales Remain In Wait Mode At the time of writing, VET’s price trades at $0.022 with a 3% and 32% loss over the last 24 hours and the past month respectively. According to crypto analyst Justin Bennett, VeChain lost a major area of support when it broke below $0.024. As seen below, this area was the last line of resistance for a “neckline” or a trendline that saw VET’s price after an increase in previous selling pressure. Not everything is lost for the bulls, the analyst believes, as long as VeChain is capable of holding above $0.021. This area is a “much more significant support for the market”. In case of further downside action, VET’s price could drop into this support line before seeing some relief. If the price manages to get back above the neckline, it could support a bullish continuation. However, traders should wait for confirmation if VET’s price can return to $0.024 and then to $0.026. Beyond that point, $0.028 seems like a very important area of resistance. Bennett believes it seems more possible that VeChain will continue on its downtrend: Resistance for VET is around $0.0237, which is the neckline it broke below yesterday. All in all, the market looks relatively weak. So even if we do see some additional relief, I think a move to at least $0.016 makes the most sense right now. Traders should watch out for a daily close below current levels or $0.022. This could hint at potential losses targeting the levels mentioned by the analyst. What Could Save VeChain In The Long Run? As NewsBTC reported, VeChain is currently in the process of deploying a major consensus update. This could facilitate the corporate adoption of the blockchain VeChainThor and inject fresh capital into the ecosystem. However, this will positively impact VET’s price over the long run. In the short term, Bennett claims the current macro conditions don’t support bullish momentum in the crypto market. The analyst recently pointed out a “Head and Shoulders” pattern formed on the crypto market total capitalization 4-hour chart.

The total crypto market cap currently stands above $800 billion and could crash into the $700 billion if the pattern plays out. Any long positions, at current levels, seem at risk, as Bennett explained: $TOTAL is a perfect example of how to use a failed head and shoulders to your advantage. That failure offered a short opportunity. I never thought to long this because of the established downtrend. I was always expecting it to fail.

Why Rich Dad, Poor Dad Author Will Wait For Bitcoin To Drop To $1,100 Before Buying More

Best-selling author Robert Kiyosaki offered his followers a “Rich dad lesson” on Bitcoin. Via his official Twitter account, the writer made a distinction between “winners” and “losers” in the crypto market. Related Reading | Reports: FTX Targeting BlockFi Purchase At $25M At the time of writing, Bitcoin has lost major support as it broke below $20,000 and it’s currently trading at $18,900 with a 6% loss in the last 24 hours. The cryptocurrency has lost over 75% of its value since reaching an all-time high at $69,000. At those levels, the Rich Dad Poor Dad author was a buyer and seemed more enthusiastic about BTC’s price future appreciation. Now, he has made a 180 degrees shift in his speech publicly bashing those investors which he classified as “losers”. Kiyosaki’s full message is rather grim, and might be aiming for an impossible level, for Bitcoin to crash all the way down to $1,100: RICH Dad lesson. “LOSERS quit when they lose.”  Bitcoin losers are quitting some committing suicide.’WINNERs learn from their losses. I am waiting for Bitcoin to “test” $1100. If it recovers I will buy more. If it does not I will wait for losers to “capitulate” quit then buy more. In the past, Kiyosaki highlighted $20,000 as the “buy the dip” level. The author called the cryptocurrency a hedge against inflation and called the BTC’s price crashing “good news” and predicted a “time to get richer” by increasing his holdings. The author was bullish on BTC and precious metals, but it’s unclear what has caused him to shift his views. On a different occasion, Kiyosaki foresaw the start of a depression, preceded by a “giant crash” across global markets. The main trigger for this scenario is the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) and its attempts to slow down inflation, which is currently at a 40-year high. At that time, Kiyosaki said: BIDEEN & FED need inflation to prevent New Depression. Inflation rips off the poor. Inflation makes rich richer. Biden and Fed corrupt. Prepare: Giant crash then new depression. Be smart Buy, gold, silver Bitcoin. Should You Listen To Robert Kiyosaki? Kiyosaki was almost right when he predicted Bitcoin would reach an all-time high near $75,000. However, as crypto users pointed out, he has been mostly wrong about his BTC’s price prediction. As seen below, Kiyosaki has been talking about this doomsday scenario for over a decade. In 2017, he tweeted about a potential crash in the real estate market, this prediction proceeded a major bull run in the sector.

The crypto market seems soft and susceptible to macro-conditions, but for BTC to return to the $1,000 levels seems unlikely.
