Analysts Foresee Bitcoin Surging to $10,000 Without a Pullback as it Hits $8,947

The bitcoin price jumped on Monday, almost retesting the $9,000-level for the first time since May 2018 in what seemed like a clear bull run.

The world’s leading cryptocurrency climbed as much as 13.5 percent, measured from levels on Sunday noon, and was trading at $8947.88 as of 0100 UTC today on US-based Coinbase exchange. The jump brought bitcoin’s maximum year-to-date gains to 142.40 percent, attesting to the end of 2018’s infamous bearish phase that wiped more than 70 percent of bitcoin value from its all-time high at $20,000.

Bulls now believe that the cryptocurrency would retest its historic peak once again, even though it remains about $11,500 below the target at the time of this writing. The renewed buying sentiment finds its roots in a series of uplifting news from the broader financial industry, particularly from Fidelity Investments. The Boston firm, which was managing $2.3 trillion worth of assets as of March 2018, announced that it would start offering Bitcoin trading services to its institutional clients.

Nevertheless, there are also theories that say bitcoin is an overvalued asset. Analysts at JP Morgan Chase recently noted that the cryptocurrency’s rate has surged beyond its “intrinsic value,” – a prediction many in the cryptocurrency community rejected, stating that the banking behemoth earlier didn’t even accept that bitcoin had value.

Pullback Before Breakout

In the middle of bullish and bearish arguments are technical analysts that are predicting bitcoin at a six-figure rate – based on popular market indicators. But yet, a segment of those examiners are careful about a significant price pullback before anything big takes place.

Well recognized cryptocurrency trader and investor Josh Rager said bitcoin could possible correct by at least 30 percent on every top formation, citing the asset’s historical price behaviour.

“The average gain after a 30%+ pullback was over 153% profit before the next strong pullback,” stated Rager.

Cred, another famous cryptocurrency analyst, also envisioned a potential pullback scenario in which the bitcoin price could fall as low as $6,182 due to its overbought conditions. Nevertheless, the alias remained bullish from a long-term perspective.

“I have no reason to turn bearish yet – even if this range breaks down I’ll be a buyer at mid 6,000s (where we last wicked). A breakout would take us to roughly $10,000,” wrote Crypto Cred ahead of Monday’s price rally.

There are, meanwhile, two extremely polar points of views that tend to explain the ongoing bitcoin price boom. The first narrative is of possible price manipulation, as discussed by Preston Byrne, one of the partners at New York-based Byrne & Storm. The lawyer theorized a disturbing correlation between BitFinex and Bitcoin, speculating that the Hong Kong crypto exchange artificially pumped the cryptocurrency rate with a fresh $800 million worth of supply of Tether’s stablecoin USDT.

If the looming bubble should spin wildly out of control, here’s a timely and healthy reminder to investors to keep their wits about them, don’t propose that a new paradigm is upon us, and be mindful of gravity,” said Byrne.

Meanwhile, the second narrative is slightly optimistic. The bitcoin supply rate is scheduled to cut down by half in May 2020 in a protocol-oriented event called halvening.

UK Financial Regulator FCA Won’t Regulate Bitcoin and Ether

single-image

Major British regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), will not regulate Bitcoin (BTC) as a part of its recent guidance on crypto assets.

FCA finalizes its statement on crypto after a public consultation released in January

On July 31, the FCA issued its finalized policy statement on cryptocurrencies in a document titled “PS19/22: Guidance on Cryptoassets.” The document represents an updated version of a consultation paper on crypto assets that was first released for public comment in January 2019, and intends to bring more regulatory clarity to the existing types of digital assets.

In the document, the FCA considered major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether (ETH) as “exchange tokens,” describing them as types of crypto assets that are “usually decentralized and primarily used as a means of exchange.” The regulator emphasized that such digital currencies do not fall under the regulatory scope of the FCA and is outside its…

Bitcoin’s 3 Day Price Charts Point to an Impending ‘Golden Cross’

single-image

A bitcoin price indicator is about to turn bullish for the first time since the early stages of the 2016-17 bull market.

The 50-candle moving average (MA) on bitcoin’s three-day chart is in a solid upward trajectory and looks set to cross above the 200-candle MA in the next few days.

That would be the first golden crossover on the three-day chart since early February 2016. CoinDesk reported on a golden cross for bitcoin’s daily chart back in April.

Seasoned traders often refer to that long-term bull market signal as a lagging indicator. After all, the MA studies are based on historical data and tend to lag prices, which also means they have limited predictive abilities at best.

While that is true for most crossovers, the one that is about to happen on the three-day chart has proved its mettle as a reliable bull market indicator in the past.

Bitcoin Price Passes $10,000 as Cryptocurrency’s Spectacular Recovery Continues

single-image

The price of bitcoin has broken above $10,000 (£7,855) for the first time since March 2018, as the cryptocurrency’s remarkable surge in value continues.

Bitcoin passed the milestone after experiencing gains of more than 10 per cent over the last 24 hours.

The price jump saw the world’s largest cryptocurrency reach as high as $10,831, according to the CoinMarketCap price index, taking its overall market capitalisation close to $200 billion.

Bitcoin’s most recent run of good form began in early February, when it was trading at well below $4,000.

It had reached this price after more than a year of steady declines saw its price withdraw dramatically from its late 2017 peak of close to $20,000.

Bitcoin’s recent run has drawn comparisons from some with bitcoin’s run in 2017, with some hoping it can go beyond its previous record high.

“This really is amazing,” one crypto enthusiast wrote on Twitter. “It has 2017 written…

Why We Could See The Price of Bitcoin Quadruple Within Just a Few Months

Bitcoin is ballooning to new highs… but can it last?

Compound interest might be the most powerful force in the universe, but FOMO can’t be far behind, especially as it relates to bitcoin.

We’ve seen the “fear of missing out” contribute to a nosebleed rise in the price of bitcoin BTCUSD, before, and Fundstrat’s Thomas Lee believes we’re about to see it play out again — but even more pronounced.

The outspoken bitcoin backer told clients this week the world’s top cryptocurrency could ride a wave of FOMO all the way up to $40,000 “within a few months,” thanks to better transparency and a breach of the psychological $10,000 barrier.

He pointed to Grayscale Bitcoin Trust GBTC, as a great way to partake in a rally that would be most welcomed by the crypto bulls who had to suffer through a 74% drop in the price of bitcoin last year.

“Bottom line: Crypto winter looks over,” Lee said….
