Although BTC is back at trading sideways, Fundstrat Global Advisors co-founder Tom Lee expects this to change with the coming launch of Bakkt and is positive on its ability “to improve trust with institutions to crypto.”
The world’s largest cryptocurrency continues to trade flat, with an intraday high of around $10,280, while slowly trading downward to its current trading price of $10,147, showing a loss of 1.16% on the day, according to data from Coin360.
Price analyst Rakesh Upadhyay wrote today that a breakout of the downtrend line of the symmetrical triangle will indicate that the bulls have overpowered the bears and a new trending move will begin. He expects the momentum to carry the price to the yearly high of $13,973. While the rally might face resistance at $12,304.37 and $13,156.96, he expects these levels to be crossed.
While Bitcoin fails to impress, Ether (ETH) is holding on to its recent gains well above the $200 price mark. The most popular altcoin is currently trading at $217.97, while showing a loss of 0.63% on the day.
