Analyst Predicts A Clear Uptrend For ARB

Cryptocurrency analyst Michaël van de Poppe has predicted a clear uptrend for Arbitrum, signaling a possible breakout. The analyst shared his projections for the token on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter).

In his analysis, he noted that the uptrend is “taking place with beautiful retests of previous resistances, becoming a support zone.” Poppe further pointed out a possible retest optimal “go-to level” between $1.50-1.60. 

This area denotes a tactical stage where the token might experience a retest before opting to breach the psychological barrier of $2.  However, this will only take place if the ARB continues on the current upward path.

Lastly, Poppe highlighted a difficulty in the token initiating its first cycle when put against Bitcoin. “Against $BTC, this pair barely wakes up and starts its first cycle,” he stated.

With the recent price of Arbitrum sitting at $1.84, it appears that the analyst’s predictions will soon come to pass.
