Chris Vermeulen, head of strategy at investment advisory firm TheTechnicalTraders, said Bitcoin and gold will see more price consolidation before a new ATH is placed on the chart.
He believes that Bitcoin, often referred to as “digital gold,” “will go through a series of rallies and accumulations in the coming months before reaching new highs”.
Bitcoin’s price action in 2017 (as it does now) followed a similar path. After hitting an ATH of $ 20,000 in 2017, it fell significantly.
