A bullish view? positively!

So, it seems unlikely that Bitcoin price will take a drop, however, a bullish scenario is surely on the horizon once this futures expiration passes, to be on the safe side.

Crypto trader Eric Choe shares both the sides of the coins with his Tweet:


Meanwhile, cryptoanalyst, Squeeze is certainly bullish as he shares, “Everyone and their grandma are bullish right now,” before further adding:


Moreover, according to the relative strength index (RSI), Bitcoin is up for an extended bull run. Bloomberg reported,

“Based on an analysis of RIG trend lines, a leading technical indicator that is a combination of the RSI and momentum studies, the momentum gauge crossed the relative strength index (RSI) gauge, which could be indicating a positive price movement is on the horizon. Bitcoin’s price rose the past three times the two gauges crossed.”

At the moment, the market is reflecting bullish views which means first $8k and then $10k seems to be the most likely the mark Bitcoin will achieve in the short term.
