Next stop $85K for Bitcoin as analysts predict ‘explosive’ Q4 for BTC price action

New research shows that Bitcoin (BTC), which is expected to reach $85,000 by Q4 of this year, could surpass $100,000.

Decentrader, a trading platform, released its Friday market update. It revealed a bullish mid-term BTC price forecast.

Next stop $85,000 BTC/USD

Analysts remain bullish on Bitcoin price action despite BTC/USD remaining below $50,000 this week.

Filbfilb, Decentrader analyst, is no exception. He forecasts not only a match of all-time highs, but also a breach of $100,000 prior to the years end.

He concluded that “So, with bullish signals in near term we could now set up for a major Run that first takes $BTC towards $85,000 before breaking through to the psychological barrier at $100,000.”

“Making for an explosive quarter of 2021.”

Cointelegraph reported that Bitcoins price performance is playing catch-up to its underlying network fundamentals for a while.

This process should be concluded by a squeeze upward. It is similar to 2020. However, Bitcoins value in US dollars should be an order-of-magnitude higher this time.

Filbfilb wrote, “If price rallies in the manner we expect it to in the coming weeks then our first major goal is a level which front-runs 1.618 fib level at $85,900.”

“We dont think this will be a major cycle high, but it may provide a point for resistance before a possible parabolic run that takes me beyond $100,000.”
