Popular Bitcoin analyst Carl Martin shared a BTC chart that follows an inverse head and shoulders pattern. According to this setup, the top cryptocurrency could soon hit its previous all-time of $20,000.
After quite a volatile rally to $13,000, bitcoin price action has tempered down a bit. But, the case for future gains remains strong, according to a technical setup that popular Youtube and Twitter-based BTC analyst Carl Martin shared today. This will surely get the hopium levels of bulls soaring. According to him, the top cryptocurrency will soon hit the previous all-time high of $20,000. But thereâ€™s a catch.
Bitcoinâ€™s Road To $20,000 In 2020 Has An Inverse Head And Shoulders
According to an inverse head and shoulders (IH&S) setup shared by Carl, who, by the way, goes by the name of â€˜TheMoon,â€™ bitcoin price has already cleared the first two stages of the IH&S pattern. Based on this, Carl remarked that the price target of $20,000 is closer than it appears.
Generally speaking, market participants consider IH&S as one of the bullish indicators apart from the golden cross and some wedge formations. Explosive price runs follow the successful completion of an IH&S pattern. Sometimes the upside targets look similar to the height of the middle trough.
How Does This Setup Play Out?
According to the analyst, the bitcoin price chart printed the first IH&S trough towards the beginning of this year, when BTC rallied in response to ongoing geopolitical conditions. The next formation was after theÂ Black Thursday crashÂ in March. This is when the bitcoin price fell all the way down to $3,858. And then, after a brief bout of sideways trading, began rallying towards April end-May beginning.
BTC formed the third IH&S trough after picking up post the September crash (after a flat trade phase, of course). This is the current rally in which bitcoin surpassed this yearâ€™s high and tapped $13,200. Carl said that the next stop is $19,700, but for that, BTC has to post a weekly close above the delineated â€˜neckline.â€™ But will it happen?
JP Morgan Makes The Case For A Hyper-Bullish BTC
Macro investor Dan Tapiero justÂ sharedÂ a snapshot of the â€˜Flows and Liquidity Reportâ€™ published by JP Morgan analyst Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou. The report, as per him, draws an extremely bullish outlook for bitcoin. And how? Hereâ€™s an excerpt:
â€¦the total market capitalization for bitcoin is $240bn. At first glance, this makes it comparable to the total size ofgold ETFs at $210bn. But gold ETFs is not the main way wealth is stored in gold. Wealth is mostly stored via gold bars and coins the stock of which, excluding those held by central banks, amounts to 42600 tonnes or $2.6tr including gold ETFs. Mechanically, the market cap of bitcoin would have to rise 10 times from here to match the total private sector investment to gold via ETFs or bars or coins. even a modest crowding out of gold as an â€œalternativeâ€ currency over the longer term would imply doubling or tripling of the bitcoin price from here. In other words, the potential upside for bitcoin is considerable as it competes more intensely with gold as an â€œalternativeâ€ currency we believe, given that Millenials would become over time a more important component of investorsâ€™ unviverse.
