Bitcoin recently broke the resistance at $8000 and the top cryptocurrency now barely rests above that level. After such a bullish breakthrough, the pace-setter cryptocurrency has continued to maintain a spot above $8k and according to analysis, further bullish pattern is slowly forming and Bitcoin may eventually get a spike to $8,800.
The Bullish BTC Analysis By CryptoWelson
According to cryptocurrency analyst and trader going by the name CryptoWelson on Twitter, there is a bullish possibility which may take the price of Bitcoin to the $8,800 level. The analysis identified a support level close to $8k which must be surpassed in order to continue on the bullish trajectory described by CryptoWelson. According to him, if BTC surpasses that support, then that will initiate a bull channel in which BTC is expected to gain about 10% before the end of the week.
#Bitcoin could be forming a bullish channel. ?
If we can bounce from this support, we will be going to 8800$+ this week! ?

The Other Side Of The Coin
Although CryptoWelson sounded quite bullish about the short-term price movement of BTC, he also stated a condition that might cause a reversal of the bullish trend. Expressing the possibilities of a bear market in days to come, CryptoWelson predicted that a break below a supposed greenline ($8k level) would confirm the next bearish movement which will send BTC further downwards.
