Bitcoin Outlook

Institutional investors are starting to take notice. JPMorgan said last week that bitcoin looks attractive as it competes with gold as an “alternative” currency. The firm noted that millennial investors favor bitcoin over physical gold.

JPMorgan said it believes bitcoin could double or triple from current levels and would have to surge 10x to match the value of all the physical gold in the world.

If bitcoin is able to decisively trade above its $14,000 resistance level, all eyes will be on its next, and last, remaining resistance level: $20,000. A break above that level would set the cryptocurrency up for new all-time highs.

The last signal was a sell 82 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 113.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.
