Bitcoin Overcomes $50k Price; Is The 60k Psychological Levels Next?

Having made an inter-day push above the 50k critical level yesterday, Bitcoin is finally seen to be making a fresh attempt to go above the 50k price mark, a feat the crypto giant achieved on the 23rd August but became choppy ever since until today. While some investors remain doubtful if Bitcoin will maintain or even break the newfound $50k psychological level, some are setting higher targets.

Bitcoin continues to gain more institutional adoption. With more countries adopting or warming up to adopt the digital currency giant despite the volatile price nature, Bitcoin will be expected to retest the $60k psychological level once the bulls can close above the $50k levels. As more institutional adoption of Bitcoin is expected, the fear of missing out is also expected to kick in, which might just be the catalyst the bulls needs for new highs.

Bitcoin has shown a very bullish technical signal as BTC is seen to have made three consecutive weekly closes above the 21-week and 200-day moving average, the cryptocurrency’s largest buy signal since April.

However, one important metric that has left some investors skeptical about Bitcoin is the fact that the flagship cryptocurrency has been losing its crypto market dominance having moved from 70% dominance in January to around 42%.

President Alexander Lukashenko has made a call for the usage of abandoned mining sites in the country to generate revenue from cryptocurrency mining.

Having shown a very bullish technical signal as BTC is seen to have made three consecutive weekly closes above the 21-week and 200-day moving average, which is the cryptocurrency’s largest buy signal since April. Our Bitcoin market sentiment curve has enjoyed a massive uptrend towards bullish having gone from 54% bearish this time last week to 46 bearish at the moment, implying that the bulls are winning the market battle.

Crypto Market Outlook

Bitcoin is consolidating nicely above 50k and ETH is at $3900 near its all-time high. Altcoins have been running heavily. Everybody is happy and making money again – if they did non drop out of the market in the May crash. In that case, they should have observed CryptoCaptain’s sell signal that came in time before the crash and would have saved them before a +50% drawdown.

Now, regarding today’s market, many analysts expect Bitcoin to prepare for a big move, say a $5k daily candle, coming soon. But in which direction? Sellers, expecting a dip to $40k before the continuation of the bull market might be caught on the wrong side.

According to a supply shock valuation model by Willy Woo, Bitcoin should go to 55k soon. Also, on-chain analysis strongly suggests that cryptos go higher. Finally, CryptoCaptain’s sentiment analysis is strongly up-trending, suggesting a fair amount of bullishness. But note that when Bitcoin starts to run, altcoins might take a pause again. That’s the money cycle: first, the large ones run, and then the smaller and older coins follow.
