Bitcoin price prediction: Where is Bitcoin price heading?
Bitcoin price started the year with slight bullish momentum while the market had still not recovered from the crypto winter of 2018. However, the bullish momentum seemed short-lived as the price declined to near $4,000 in March. However, the buyers defended the key support level at $4,000 and initiated a bullish rally that has elevated the price significantly since then.
The price ascended smoothly until it reached the region between $8,000 and $10,000. The price action then consolidated there for nearly two months as the bulls and bears fought for market dominance. The bulls tried to charge above but were unable to do so until September. Since then, the bulls have been in control, with the price rising at a steep gradient for the better part of October and November.
On the technical indicators, the RSI shows that the current Bitcoin price is too high and suggests that the asset is overbought. The indicator suggests that the price needs a healthy correction before continuing the bull rally. However, the MACD shows that the buyers remain firmly in control of the price action without any signs of a bearish turnover.
The price action seems like it needs a healthy correction. However, the momentum suggests that the bulls may continue to chare ahead as fear of missing out (FOMO) kicks in. As such the price can be expected to continue rising with hopes of touching $20,000 in early to mid-December. However, a correction will take place albeit at a higher price level.
