BTC has rallied 26.8% since Sept. 29 when it touched $40,885 and traders are rejoicing at the prospect of a year-end close over $100,000, which is now the price target for 2021.

The difference between Bitcoin 100k and current prices is less than 2x. Let that sink in for awhile.

Halte your horses! Bulls still need to reclaim $55,000

ExoAlpha’s managing partner David Lifchitz saw Tuesday’s price action as a welcome sight. He considered the 10% increase in Oct. 1 to be a short squeeze and that there was no real reason for it to trigger, unless it was created by large players that were looking to make a profit from the quiet, illiquid market.

Lifchitz cautioned that BTC was not yet out of the woods despite the recent move higher. “Technical indicators all point to a move upward, but they have been fooled by the sudden spike in October 1st, only 3 days ago.”

Lifchitz said:

“At this stage there are two options: bulls can get back into the game and push BTC (the …)barometer above $55,000; we can expect a rise towards the $64,000 all time high soon afterward. Or they may remain skeptical about the move of $44,000 to $48,000 within 2 minutes. They may not have enough firepower or the financial resources to reach $53,000-$55,000 at that point BTC could return to the middle of its 5-month old $40,000-$50,000 range.
