Looking at the weekly chart of Bitcoin, we can see that there has been a strong Rounding Bottom pattern (Blue line) forming since January 2018.
The current price has been testing a critical level at $11,557, which if it breaks above we will see an influx of buyers which will cause bitcoin’s price to rocket.
We’ll use the Top-Down formula to calculate the next target price for bitcoin.
Target = (Top – Bottom) + Top
= ($11,607 – $3,197) + $11,607
This means, we can expect bitcoin to rally another 72% to $20,017…
