The benchmark cryptocurrency broke above the psychological $10k level on May 2, achieving a new high above $10,400. Unfortunately, the cryptocurrency succumbed to profit-taking as it dropped sharply to $9,300 shortly afterward.
The dip was not completely unexpected as BTC has faced massive rejection at the $10k zone for approximately 12 times since October last year.
Bitcoin is valued at $9,593.88 at the time of publication, as the tussle between the bulls and the bears continues. However, according to a price indicator that is gaining traction among crypto investors, August could well be the very last time BTC is worth less than $10,000.
Lowest Price Forward Indicator Points To August As The Last Time For Sub-$10K
Timothy Peterson, CFA manager at Cane Island Alternative Advisors shared his analysis of the bitcoin price via a tweet on June 2. In his tweet, Peterson stated that the Lowest Price Forward (LPF) indicator suggests that bitcoin will recapture $10,000 and August will be the last time we see the crypto-asset below $10K.
On May 22, Peterson had indicated that 3 of the bitcoin metrics that he tracks namely Metcalfe value, lowest price forward, and 200-day moving average, had converged for the fourth time in history. The three previous times these metrics have converged, a significant increase in price has always ensued.
This time around, the LPF is showing that BTC will never cost less than $10,000 again after August. He attached the image below to add credence to his assertion.
This would mark the official start of a bull market after months and months of consolidation below $10,000.
Timeline For Parabolic BTC Growth
BTC’s current ATH stands at almost $20,000 set in December of 2017. Market participants are now hankering for a new all-time high, especially because bitcoin recently underwent the long-awaited supply squeeze.
For popular analyst PlanB, a red dot on the stock-to-flow model was recently released, suggesting the start of a fresh bull market that will likely take bitcoin to $100,000 by 2021. The analyst assured his followers that the red dot is still there, even with the recent market correction.
ZyCrypto has recently reported that Timothy Peterson expects BTC to top $1 million by 2027.
