Here’s what traders and analysts are saying about what comes next for Bitcoin now that the price is back above $60,000 and the long-awaited Bitcoin ETF look ready to become a reality.

On the precipice of a massive breakout

According to cryptocurrency analyst and pseudonymous Twitter users Rekt Capital, Bitcoin’s move on Friday has it trading just below a major resistance level that is the last barrier standing in its way from exploding into uncharted territory.

From this perspective, if BTC can manage to post a weekly close above this level, there is “exponential upside” potential as price discovery will not be hampered by previously establish resistance zones while bulls will attempt to fulfill the calls for a $100,000 BTC price.

Analysts say crypto markets are maturing

Insight into the long-term trajectory of the cryptocurrency ecosystem was provided by Konstantin Shugla, CEO and co-founder of Finery Markets, who indicated that “crypto markets are going the same maturity route as other traditional asset classes.”

According to Shugla, the growth in the sector is beginning to attract “a new level of mass institutional adoption that no firm can ignore anymore,” and the approval of an ETF will likely result in more institutional and retail inflows “from investors that were previously concerned with infrastructure/regulation risks.”

Shugla said:

“That will cause more volume and arbitrage opportunities for underlying instruments. I expect both historic records in terms of pricing and volumes can be hit in October and November.”

New all-time highs are coming in “just a matter of time”

A more technically-grounded perspective of the recent price action was provided by crypto trader and pseudonymous Twitter user Pentoshi, who posted the following chart outlining major support and resistance zones.

According to Pentoshi, Bitcoin has now “taken out the macro lower high from when it topped” and started to form lower lows and lower highs, and now looks to form “a new trend of higher highs and higher lows.”

Pentoshi said,

“It’s only a matter of time before all-time highs with this structure.”

The overall cryptocurrency market cap now stands at $2.443 trillion and Bitcoin’s dominance rate is 46.4%.
