Bitcoin’s retest of the breakout

Last month we shared a chart of Bitcoin breaking out of its long-term downtrend that started in December 2017. After the breakout, there is often a retest of the breakout level, which is also the current case with Bitcoin.

Based on this scenario, Bitcoin could theoretically decline to ~$9.000, but we believe this is highly unlikely in the current market environment. We expect Bitcoin and other crypto asset prices to continue with the bull run after a shorter consolidation period in the $9.800 to $10.500 Bitcoin price range.
