What Happened: Capo forecasted that BTC would crash below $23,000, and he's now considering the impact on the crypto market.
In a Twitter post, he said it’s just a matter of time and Bitcoin would fall to new lows soon.

Second option playing out. Any test of 23500 as resistance is a good sell opportunity.
Consolidation below 22500 (clean break + use the level as resistance) would be very bearish = 21k or lower

According to him, the crypto asset has taken the bearish option, by dropping to the $21,000 level.
Capo added that Bitcoin is currently in the fifth wave of the primary downward trend and could correct to the upside in a three-wave pattern to the $23,500 level.

Capo predicted that $23,500 would strongly resist pushing Bitcoin towards the $20,000 key area.
Earlier in March, Capo predicted that the apex crypto would fall under $23,000. Bitcoin ended up hitting a 2022 low of under $18,000 in June.
