The CME Bitcoin futures chart now has an upward gap.
Since the significant decline in Bitcoin (BTC) last weekend, there has now been an upward gap in the CME Group’s Bitcoin futures chart. The two large gaps on either side are between $ 23,670 and $ 26,645 (down) and between $ 39,165 and $ 40,535 (up).
Simon Peters, an analyst at Etoro, explained to investors in a notice that the crypto markets are still in a healthy position. “Despite yesterday’s slump, we are still in a healthy position,” wrote Peters. “Not only are we continuing to see institutional investments, but Bitcoin is also being held on the stock exchanges as investors move their tokens into wallets. Glassnode data shows that more and more illiquid Bitcoin is accumulating as more and more investors hodl.”
The Etoro analyst added he wouldn’t be surprised if BTC prices were above the $ 70,000 range by the end of the year. “I think we can take the range of $ 70,000 to $ 90,000 as a target price for the end of 2021,” said Peters. “There will inevitably be bumps along the road and no doubt there will be a number of retracements, but there are still profits to be made.”
