Bitcoin’s continuous climb to $7,500 came in the wake of improving buying sentiment and technical forecasts. Fidelity Investments, a Boston-based asset management firm with a vast Wall Street clientele, announced last week that it would add bitcoin trading to its list of institutional investment services. At the same time, online investment service TD Ameritrade started offering stimulated bitcoin trading through Nasdaq, raising hopes that a full-fledged bitcoin adoption was underway.
Meanwhile, technical data continued to identify the end of bitcoin’s most prolonged bearish phases after the asset formed a low in $3,100-3,200 range on December 15, 2018. Momentum indicator Stochastic RSI, for instance, rebounded from its oversold territory for the first time since February 2018 on monthly charts. The move identified a trend shift, meaning that the market was eyeing an extended bitcoin price recovery in the future.

At the same time, bullish analysts continued to strengthen their long-term upside targets following the Golden Cross formation. The technical chart pattern held a historical significance in the bitcoin market for shooting the price from $300 to $20,000 in 14 months. The latest Golden Cross formation too prompted a bitcoin uptrend which, as bulls believed, would lead the price beyond $20,000 by the end of this year.
A significant investment firm was also studying bitcoin’s old price behavior to understand its next move. Vancouver-based Canaccord Genuity found that bitcoin could continue its bull trend over the next 24 months. The firm expected the cryptocurrency to retest $20,000 due to next year’s Halving event, which would reduce the current bitcoin supply by half.
“Now four months into 2019, we note for the third time the striking similarity in bitcoin’s price action between 2011-2015 and 2015-2019,” Canaccord said in a note. “While this simple pattern recognition has a little fundamental basis, we note that bitcoin does operate on a four-year cycle of sorts, as the halving of bitcoin’s mining reward occurs approximately every four years.”
Near Term Targets
The bitcoin price was now eyeing the $7,785-8,602 range as its next potential bull target. The said area had adequate reversal sentiment, given its ability to cap small uptrends between April and July 2018. A pullback at any given level could push the bitcoin price violently towards interim supports, the nearest one being at $7,000.
