Bitcoin’s recent push higher has made some investors look ahead, speculating as to what comes next if the leading cryptocurrency manages to set new year-to-date highs.
One crypto-asset trader believes that should BTC surmount its summer highs of $12,500, $13,000 will be crucial to watch. The trader shared the chart below on October 8th, which shows BTC’s price action since the 2017 lines with $13,000 and the prices in that vicinity highlighted.
Explaining why $13,000 is so relevant, the analyst who shared the chart wrote:
“IMO $13’000 is the most important $BTC macro level. 1) Rejected 2018, pulled back to 3k. 2) Rejected 2019 before flashcrash to 3k. 3) Tested once in 2020 since price recovery. Push and hold through for a while (not just a fence) would make me believe in ATH. A man can dream.”
Some think that $14,000 may be of more importance due to it marking the exact highs of 2019’s rally. $14,000 also marked where BTC’s December 2017 candle closed, not $20,000 as some may expect.
It can be said that the resistance between $13,000 and $14,000 is important
