Bitcoin (BTC/USD) on its way to reach the 20k milestone
The Bitcoin continues to be the protagonist of the main headlines of the media that cover the movements of cryptocurrency, since during the weekend reached the important psychological level of 19,000, also renewing its highest level of all time. The yields of the BTC, according to the latest data, already exceed 80%.
However, due to the growth that cryptocurrency has had in a meteoric manner, concerns that this is the indicator that there is a bubble on the verge of bursting to continue to keep investors wary of maintaining long-term positions. According to the latest reports, it is speculated that the price of Bitcoin has been inflated in an artificial way for the benefit of speculators.
On the other hand, Bitcoin futures, listed as XBT, show a consolidation above the level of 18,000. According to the technical outlook, there is still a follow-up of a bullish trend line projected from the lows of December 10th, providing dynamic support to cryptocurrency in the short term.
What do we expect?
According to our projections in the H1 chart, the Parabolic SAR is supporting the idea that Bitcoin is entering a slight corrective phase, which will allow consolidating some of the gains recorded over the weekend. The price has already reached the Fibonacci target of -23.6% at 19,114 and this is the indicator that take profit's orders are being activated, before reaching the key psychological level of 20,000.
