Bitcoin close to 70k level
Bitcoin’s price continued its ascent during the first half of Wednesday’s daily candle and even made a new all-time high of $69,044. That momentum ended abruptly however after reaching a local top just shy of the $ 70k level. BTC’s price finished the day -$1,981.
The BTC/USD 1W chart below from CRYPTOPICKK paints an interesting picture for traders that are interested in a comparison between 2017’s bitcoin bull cycle and the 2021 edition the market is currently experiencing.
The chartist took a fractal from 2017 and applied it to this cycle and the chart matches up quite nicely. The chartist posits that a small retrace could be next. From the chart, it appears a trip back to the $58,5k level could potentially be in play if 2021’s fractal continues to follow the 2017 fractal.
If this log scale parallel channel continues and this bull cycle continues onward, the overhead target at the top of the ascending channel for bitcoin bulls is the $284k level.
Conversely, BTC bears will hope they can buck the historical trend and send BTC’s price to the bottom of this long term channel at the $15k level.
BTC’s 24 hour price range is $62,866-$69,044 and its 7 day price range is $60,493-$69,044. Bitcoin’s 52 week price range is $15,312-$69,044.
