Below is a list of what analysts and traders have to say about Bitcoins recent price action and what the future holds for this top-ranked digital asset.
$66,000 is needed to be considered support
The price of Bitcoin has risen rapidly over the last three weeks, pushing it back to Aprils major resistance level. This fact was highlighted by independent crypto analyst, “Rekt Capital.”

This time, the main difference is that bulls now attempt to establish this level of support as the new support zone. This will give BTC a solid foundation for further gains.
This has become a crucial price level in the short-term as the market enters the last week of October.
The bullish Q4 trend has been historically strong
Many in the space are pondering whether it is time to make profits or increase their position sizes after the breakout to an all-time high.
David Lifchitz is the managing partner at ExoAlpha and chief investment officer. He stated that everything was possible in crypto-land. He suggested that a steady uptrend could take BTC to $80,000 within a short time, or a slight pullback to $58,000 or $53,000, before moving higher towards $80,000 and beyond.
Historically speaking, it is likely that there would be a pullback after the torrid ride. Lifchitz highlighted the $64,500 level and the $58,000 level as key areas to watch for potential “lightening up positions” in case of a pullback. He also suggested that the $53K and $64,000 levels are key areas to monitor for the possibility of loading-up again in the $53K area if the pullback gets deeper.
Lifchitz stated that Bitcoin and the wider cryptocurrency market look positive as it enters its final quarter in 2021.
“Historically, the 4th quarter was bullish. It favors an upside target for year-end. Overall bullish in the medium-term, but there may be some turbulence.”

According to the analyst:
“A little profit taking in Bitcoin as it falls below its previous high of $65,000 The minimum holding price must be above $62,000 or we will retest $58,000 within the next few sessions. We are glad to be done for now.
The total cryptocurrency market is now worth $2.548 trillion, and Bitcoins dominance rate at 46.5%.
