The price of Bitcoin (BTC) hit a new yearly high at $16,717 on Binance. Following the breakout, traders expect a larger rally to occur in the near term.
There are several reasons why analysts expect a prolonged uptrend. First, Bitcoin cleanly broke out of $16,000, taking out the $16,473 peak achieved on Nov. 13. Second, there is a “sell-side crisis” brewing as more BTC gets accumulated than mined. Third, BTC rallied despite indicators showing overbought signals.
