Forbes: Bitcoin Price Surges Similarly to 2017, How Far Will It Go?

$12,500, $13,000…$15,000?

The new high comes shortly after Bitcoin touched the $12,500 mark for the first time since January 2018. Given the amount of enthusiasm within the cryptocurrency community, it didn’t take a crystal ball to predict that BTC would soon be able to reach $13,000.   

Meanwhile, market analyst Naeem Aslam predicts that we are going to see $15,000 in a couple of weeks given that the bulls feel very emboldened.  

Now the momentum is immensely strong and we do think that the price is highly likely to touch the level of $15,000 in the next couple of weeks,” he recently told Bloomberg.

As reported by U.Today, during this unprecedented crypto rally, hedge funds are betting on Bitcoin’s downfall, but they could simply use shorting as a hedging instrument.  

As Bloomberg points out, there is a record number of short futures positions.  


The retail sector is yet to jump onboard

The previous rally was primarily driven by retail investors, but this time it seems like they are yet to join the party. Google Trends data shows that today’s level of interest in Bitcoin doesn’t hold a candle to the crypto frenzy that took over the world right before the number one cryptocurrency reached its current ATH of $20,000.
