This will mean that Bitcoin is finally going to break the three-year downtrend resistance line. All eyes are on $20,000 as the year 2020 gradually draws to an end. In the following year, according to an analyst on Tradingview, Bitcoin would have the potential to hit new all-time highs. FlaviusTodorius67, the analyst writes that:

It will lead to 20k this year, and to new all-time highs next year. The target remains at around 100k, possibly more with luck.

DXY is falling, inflation rising, gold also pumping, macr-economically everything aligns perfectly. Then also halving still in play. Also, number of daily transactions rising sharply.

Fasten your seatbelts, because if we go over 10.5k, this is it. Then it has started.
