Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Ready to Jump Higher?

A custom technical signal that has predicted Bitcoin’s price trends to a tee over the past six weeks is printing a buy, implying that BTC may soon mount higher. The indicator doesn’t show where Bitcoin is headed, but there are some analysts expecting the cryptocurrency to reenter the $10,000 range in coming trading sessions.

While this may not sound notable, especially considering that the signal is little-known, the Ribbbon Reaper has accurately predicted BTC’s price action nearly down to the dot over the past few weeks, marking local tops and bottoms. In fact, prior to the 42% rally seen at the end of October, during which Bitcoin embarked on a historic surge from $7,300 to $10,600, the indicator flashed a buy.

If historical precedent is of any current relevance, Bitcoin may soon rally higher, likely to retest the mid-$9,000s or high-$9,000s in an attempt to establish new multi-week highs.

Importantly, it isn’t only the Ribbbon Reaper that is implying BTC is building strength as it has consolidated over the past few days.
