• Why Bitcoin could come close to $80,000 by October-end

  • Over the last week, Bitcoin has pierced several price ceilings. The king coin was well and truly back within a bullish long-term bias after touching $55K for the first time in five months. Moving forward, a decisive close above the 23.6 percent Fibonacci level would propel BTC to $60,000, leaving sellers with only a limited number of options. BTC was trading at $55,525 at the time of writing, up 2.9 percent in the previous 24 hours.

    The market leader’s gains in the first eight days of October have accounted for nearly 40% of the total. With a difficult month of September behind it and a golden cross occurring just a few days ago, BTC has reverted to a bullish bias. Getting past the 78.6 percent Fibonacci Extension and the $60,000 price ceiling would pave the way for a new ATH. If bulls can maintain their relentless pressure, the 138.2 percent ($73,031) and 161.8 percent ($78,744) Fibonacci levels could be BTC’s next destinations.

    According to the Visible Range, BTC may face some selling pressure between $58,600 and $60,000, but bears have few options above this level. This range appeared to be the final stumbling block in BTC’s path to $70,000 in many ways. If sellers prevail, look for a retest of near-term support levels of $53,000 and $50,000.


    The indicators for BTC were expected to bring in more buyers to the market. Following a bullish crossover, the +DI of the Directional Movement Index resumed movement above the -DI. The MACD has also maintained its upward trend and is now trading above the half-line. Short-sellers would be discouraged from placing their bets based on this reading.

    Historically, BTC has repeatedly pushed its RSI into the overbought zone during a single rally. Currently, the RSI had only formed one peak in the upper zone and had more room for growth before reversing course.


    Buyers and sellers may clash in the $58,600-$60,000 price range in the coming days. From there, a close above $60,000 with conviction would propel BTC to a new all-time high. BTC could even extend up to its 138.2 percent and 161.8 percent Fibonacci Extension levels by the end of October if upward pressure does not show any cracks.
