Analysts now expect traders to target $ 10,500 and above this level. Price estimates between $ 11,000 and $ 14,000 and even $ 16,000 have been released.
Although this is exciting for bulls, it is important to note that Bitcoin’s price has risen 12.76% since rising from $ 9,142 on July 21 and the price has not yet retested the underlying support at $ 9,450.
Also There is a USD 9,615 CME gap that has not yet been closed. Given the importance that traders attach to CME gaps, Any pullback below $ 9,800 increases the likelihood that the gap will be closed.
