Bitcoin Bulls Are Back

Refresh time:2019-05-14

The early April rally that sent the price of Bitcoin climbing $1,000 within an hour took a short pit stop between $5,000 and $5,800 before breaking through $6,000 and swiftly climbing higher to just under $8,000 – the next resistance level Bitcoin is currently flirting with.

The rally from $4,200 to current levels, undid nearly eight months worth of bear market, dating back as far as August 2018.

The analyst points out, what makes this rally more interesting is the lack of media frenzy, ICO craze, or “dumb money” flowing into the crypto market, driving up prices, as was seen at the end fo the 2017 hype bubble that led Bitcoin to its all-time high of $20,000 per BTC. Much of the buying is said to be the result of institutional interest increasing, and systematic buying from “smart money” and other major players who have been accumulating Bitcoin since yearly lows were set.

Since the yearly low was set back in December 2018, the price of Bitcoin has more than doubled in value, suggesting that the bottom has indeed been set, and that Bitcoin has exited accumulation into the next bull run and market cycle.

Most didn’t expect Bitcoin to reach current heights so soon after printing yearly lows and after the longest bear market on record. What started as a disbelief rally has gone full parabolic, and already has many revisiting past price targets well above Bitcoin’s last all-time high of $20,000, with many suggesting a new all-time high could be set before the end of the year given the FOMO felt across the global crypto market.
