Bitcoin Price Prediction: BTC investors increase their bets to $30,000 by January 2021

  • The price of Bitcoin is around $13,300, bounded inside a daily uptrend.
  • Several on-chain analysis platforms reported that the largest Bitcoin options trade ever was just filed.

Bitcoin is trading around $13,300 after a rally from $10,000. Many investors seem to be targeting at least $30,000 by January 2021. Statistics from Skew show that Jan21 calls crossed 10,000 with a 1:4 ratio on $32,000/36,000. 

Essentially, investors are betting on Bitcoin’s price to reach more than $30,000 by the end of January 2021. The flagship cryptocurrency is facing bearish and bullish indicators. On one hand, the potential double top on the weekly chart is negative. However, the IOMAP and other indicators show very little resistance to the upside.

Is Bitcoin on its way to $30,000?

Bitcoin just hit $13,863 on October 28, a price point identical to the one established on June 24, 2019, at $13,868, which suggests the potential of a double top on the weekly chart. So far, the price of BTC slipped to $12,785 but recovered at $13,280 currently.

Despite the recent rejection, the weekly uptrend is intact as basically any price point above $9,800 can be viewed as a higher low. The MACD flipped bullish again on October 12, and it’s gaining momentum which indicates there is still a lot of buying power.
