Most bearish outlook puts BTC at $5,400

According to regular Cointelegraph contributor Filb Filb, the support at $6,500 was more than enough for the bulls. However, he also pointed out that there was a possibility that Bitcoin will need to do more business in the $6K price region, adding:

“The most bearish immediate outlook at the moment would be $6K failing to act as a support and a fast fall to retest the 200-week moving average, currently around $5,400.”

Bitcoin could close 2019 above $10,000

More positive about BTC’s outlook was PlanB, the Twitter analyst known for his Stock-to-Flow Bitcoin price charts. He suggested that Bitcoin could easily retake five figures before 2020. He wrote:

“Call me crazy, but it wouldn’t surprise me if BTC closes 2019 at $10k+ .. opportunities like this (#bitcoin below S2F model value, 6 months before the halving) are rare.”

Ether (ETH), meanwhile, continues to trade in sync with BTC. The number-one altcoin bounced off its daily low of $145 before moving up to its current trading price of around $149 per coin. Ether is showing a modest gain of around 1.3% at press time.

XRP, the third-largest coin by market capitalization, is following today’s trend and is trading relatively flatly. The coin currently sits at $0.22 to show a gain of 0.75% on the day. The news that Ripple completed its original commitment with a final $20 million investment in money transmission network MoneyGram has had no effect on its trading price.

Tezos (XTZ) is the only of the top 20 to see a loss on the day, down 0.4%. 

The overall cryptocurrency market cap currently sits around $196.7 billion, with Bitcoin making up 66.3% of the total.
