Bitcoin Could Hit $17,000 in the Months Ahead: Trader

Bitcoin is on track to surge towards $17,000 by the end of the year, according to a top trader. The trader in question is one who predicted literal hours after Bitcoin crashed to $3,000 in March that a V-shaped reversal would be seen.

As to why he is predicting $17,000, the trader says that this will satisfy an ABC Elliot Wave pattern.

Elliot Wave is a type of technical analysis that predicts markets move in predictable waves that are “related to persistent changes in investor sentiment and psychology.”

“$BTC giving the cleanest breakout-retest setup I have seen in a very long time whilst each corrective wave since 4K has been vertical re-accumulation This has all characteristics for a strongly extended fifth – aside from BTC generally loving extended fifths.”

This latest analysis comes shortly after he said that the price of the leading crypto could hit $20,000 in 2020:

“A fair amount of ‘19/20 Bitcoin accumulation is happening by whales who bought the alt bottom My $BTC best guess for remainder of year: Parabolic 17K rally as alts hit distribution range followed by market wide shakeout, retest of 10.5K and grind to ATH Result: uber rektness.”

Also backing this optimism is a fractal of the Nasdaq from the 2008 Great Recession onward. The fractal suggests that BTC will trade at $20,000 by the end of the year.

Bloomberg Analyst Thinks BTC Will Sustain Higher Prices

Mike McGlone, a senior commodity analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, says that Bitcoin could move higher:

“Bitcoin is more likely to sustain higher levels than the Nasdaq due to increasing demand vs. declining supply and reduced volatility vs. the Nasdaq. Central-bank liquidity and fiscal stimulus may limit equity downside, but it’s fuel for bull markets in the quasi-currencies….”
McGlone recently argued that BTC will reach $20,000 by the end of 2020, citing the block reward halving. That’s a 80% rally from the current price to the end of the year.
