Spread the love

Bitcoin has made another milestone recording its highest ever weekly candle close. Analysts and investors are expecting this rally to continue into 2021 with some eyeing six-figure prices.

Following a weekend dip into mid-$18K territory, Bitcoin prices have recovered to top $19K once again and are currently trading just below $19,300.

A range-bound channel appears to have formed in this range as the asset fails to top the psychological $20K barrier. It’s highest price as recorded by was a touch over $19,900 on December 1 though some exchanges may have reported higher prices due to local demand.

Big Bitcoin Weekly Candle

A number of analysts have observed that Bitcoin has closed its highest ever weekly candle after spending almost a week above $19K. During the 2017 pump, BTC only managed three days above this price resulting in long wicks on the weekly candle.

Some commented that the close fell short on Coinbase but other exchanges such as Bitstamp and Bitmex made all-time highs on the weekly close.

Macro investor Dan Tapiero, co-founder of 10T Holdings, commented on the monumental rally Bitcoin has made since the Coronavirus induced market crash in mid-March, adding that a repeat could send prices into six-figure territory in the next year or so;

“Remarkable to think that just 9 months ago bitcoin was at 4000. Almost a 500% rally to today. 500% rally from here puts us at 100k btc. Don’t think it can happen in 9 months but it would just be replicating what it’s done in past 9 months.”

The crypto ecosystem is overwhelmingly bullish at the moment with comments from industry heavyweights such as Cameron Winklevoss;

A six-figure rally in the next 12 months seems a little farfetched, but if BTC can break the current barrier it could easily jump 50% or so in a short space of time.
