The leader of all cryptocurrency Bitcoin has experienced a sharp price drop, falling to a two-month low of $26,378. 

This plunge comes after the tweet from a notable crypto trader, Peter Brandt, warning about a potential drop for Bitcoin.

This warning was enough to trigger bearish market sentiment among investors and traders. As the price remains unstable at the moment, traders are taking a cautious approach to trading the asset.

Liquidations Trigger Bitcoin and Ethereum Price Drops

Two of the largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, Bitcoin and Ethereum, have dropped by more than 4% over the past 24 hours. 

This decline comes in the wake of recent reports that over $142 million worth of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and even the meme coin PEPE, have been liquidated in the market. 

Bitcoin, in particular, has been on a downward trend since May 10, following a lower-than-expected CPI report that suggested the Federal Reserve may put its rate hikes on hold.

After that peak, it is possible that traders started locking their realized profits from the market and began to sell their BTC to avoid loss. 

Besides, a respected and well-recognized commodity trader in the cryptocurrency industry, Peter Brabdt, tweeted that a Head & Shoulder pattern is forming on the Bitcoin chart. This indicates a possible bearish sentiment.

Furthermore, he stressed that if the pattern formed completely, Bitcoin would plunge. This recent price fluctuation and liquidation have sparked speculations among investors and traders about the future price actions of cryptocurrency.
