Altcoin Trader: Alt Bitcoin Bear Cycle Almost Over, 600% Gains During Bull Cycle Expected
While Bitcoin has the entire crypto world watching in shock and awe as the seemingly unstoppable rally continues, its crypto cousins in the altcoin market have only further dropped relative to their BTC ratio.

Altcoin Bear Cycle Coming to a Close as Drawdown Nears Peak
Due to Bitcoin being paired with altcoins on most exchanges, the two crypto asset types have a closely tied relationship between one another, however, the relationship between altcoins and their big brother Bitcoin is a confusing one. At times, they rise and fall in a completely correlated way, while other times they appear to grow or decline inverse from one another.
As soon as Bitcoin broke through resistance at $4,200 at the start of April, causing the crypto asset to rally nearly 100% to over $8,300, altcoins diverged, and hard. While Bitcoin rose, most altcoins fell significantly in their ratios relative to BTC.

The trader says that during the four previous “ALTBTC bear cycles,” all have had an average drawdown of nearly 70% – a mere 3 and a half percentage points away from current levels. This could indicate that the selling pressure is almost exhausted, and that a new bull cycle could begin.
If and when a bull cycle does come to fruition in the alt market, according to the altcoin trading professional, the average growth experienced has resulted in bringing investors as much as 617% gains. Such gains would bring the price of Ethereum to over $1,200 and near its previous all-time high, and the price of Ripple to $2.40 cents per XRP. Litecoin would be priced at well over $500 per LTC.

Gains of such nature haven’t been witnessed in the crypto market since the start of 2018. After that, the market crashed and the longest bear market on record ensued. It’s only now that the early stages of a new bull market have started, with the first ever cryptocurrency Bitcoin leading the charge, that such growth in the market has started showing signs of life once again.
