Bitcoin Shoots Higher: Here’s What Analysts Are Saying
Long-time technical analyst Peter Brandt says that Bitcoin is in the midst of a longer-term parabolic advance, potentially meaning there is upside from here.
Commenting on the chart seen below, Brandt, who has been a trader in the futures markets for decades, said:
“Bitcoin is undergoing its third parabolic advance in the past decade. A parabolic advance on an arithmetic scale is extremely rare – three on a log scale is historic.”
