It’s Time To Buy BTC As Technical Indicators Turn Bullish According To Bloomberg


The new year has just started but there is already a lot of prospects as cryptocurrencies are becoming bullish against the USD. It all started when the price of ETH became bullish against the USD carrying XRP, BTC and almost every other cryptocurrency along. This rise in price is strongly supported by technicals according to the report from Bloomberg analysts, Reade Pickert, and Vildana Hajric.

Technical Indicators Of Bitcoin (BTC) Are Bullish Against The USD


According to both reporters, the Vera Convergence (GTI) Divergence indicator has entered the longest buying streak BTC has seen in the past six months. This is mainly due to the fact that there hasn’t been any significant drop in the price of cryptocurrencies for a few weeks now. The analysts said that if the buy-side pressure keeps increasing over the next two weeks, the price of BTC will go higher. The higher it goes, the safer things will be.


The cryptocurrency index of Bloomberg Galaxy also produced similar results regarding the short-term progress of BTC. A Bloomberg intelligence analyst, Mike McGlone, who has always been skeptical about cryptocurrencies said that this relief rally may be a byproduct of the tax season in 2018. He went on to explain that the rebound is most likely not going to last long and would be followed by a long-term bear market.
