Bitcoin price surpassed $30,000 strongly amid speculation of Bitcoin ETF approval by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) this year. Traditional and crypto analysts predict further rally in BTC price as bulls guide upside momentum. BTC price has increased more than 10% in a week due to demand from institutional investors and whales.
History Suggests Further Upside In Bitcoin
In the past five years, weekly gains of at least that amount led to a 10% average increase in the value of Bitcoin over the next month, according to Bloomberg data. The crypto market cap jumped 2% in 24 hours amid rising anticipation of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval this year. Bitcoin and altcoins continue upside momentum, with Ethereum rising more than 3%.
Asset managers such as BlackRock and Fidelity Investments are racing to offer a spot Bitcoin ETF in the US. Some believe a Bitcoin ETF approval will bring massive inflows into the crypto market.
“The drums seem to be beating louder that a Bitcoin ETF will be approved by year-end, which would be supportive for the token in the medium term as it will likely bring more institutional players into the space,” said Tony Sycamore, a market analyst at IG Australia Pty.
Bitcoin finds support from the U.S. Federal Reserve officials’ dovish stance on further rate hikes. The Fed comments hint at cooling inflation, reducing the need for another interest rate hike. In addition, inflows in crypto funds week-over-week indicate rising demand of BTC by institutional investors.
Caroline Bowler, chief executive officer at crypto platform BTC Markets Pty predicts “Volatility in Bitcoin has the potential to escalate further.”
BTC Price Inches Toward $31,000
BTC price jumped 3% in the last 24 hours and 10% in a week, with the price currently trading at $30,700. The 24-hour low and high are $29,720 and $30,951, respectively. Furthermore, the trading volume continues to increase, with 20% in the last 24 hours.
Popular crypto analyst CredibleCrypto predicts a monthly close above $30k-$32k to bring a rally. Meanwhile, some are concerned about the monthly resistance level at $35k or the bearish OB that starts at $37k. However, he believes it’s the best time to go long in BTC.
Crypto analysts said the real upside momentum starts above $31,000. The chart patterns and indicators reveal bullish continuation.
