Although the price has been corrected a little bit, trading at $13,290 at press time, the coin is now setting its gaze towards the $14,000 price level which could be broken before the end of the week.

Should this evening prove to be as bullish as yesterday’s BTC has the potential of breaking the $16,000 resistance by 1st of July 2019.

However, if the trend is solely based on the fear of missing out (FOMO) then anything is possible since the Bitcoin price can take any direction in the hours to come.
