Trader Notes: Renowned analyst Michael van de Poppe thinks the best time for altcoins is yet to come.

Pseudonymous analyst ChimpZoo commented on funding rates, noting that the slight positive lean was not as exaggerated as in March. Cold Blooded Shiller expects crypto stocks, colloquially called “stonks,” to take the limelight in summer.

Popular trader Capo of Crypto foresees another bounce for the markets after a lackluster Tuesday U.S. session.

What’s Next: The influence of Bitcoin as an institutional asset class is expected to be thoroughly explored at Benzinga’s upcoming Future of Digital Assets event on Nov. 19.
