The leading investment bank in the United States continues to be surprisingly bullish on Bitcoin. The latest analysis from the bank suggests that Bitcoin price will spike to $13,971 in the short-term. Moreover, the analysis adds that the surge is the beginning of a five-wave count as long as the correction from the highs at $13,971 does not drop below $9,084 (July low).
- Goldman Sachs forecast places Bitcoin at $13791 in the short-term.
- Investors waited with baited breadths for Bitcoin to slide to $11,000 (buying opportunity).
Meanwhile, Bitcoin is trading at $11,353. The largest cryptocurrency on the market is holding on to the 61.8% Fib retracement level taken between the last swing high around $13,838.56 to a swing low of $7,425.82. The recovery from July low embraced support from the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level as well as the 100-day Simple Moving Average.

Trading above the 50-day SMA bequeathed Bitcoin a compelling move past the current market value at $11,353 (61.8% Fibo). BTC/USD rose above the critical $12,000 level and ground to a halt on achieving a high of $12,311.
The daily chart, suggests that Bitcoin is supported by immense buying pressure at $11,000. Therefore, retracement towards this level will only serve to increase buying entries for Bitcoin as investors wait to buy low and sell high.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) gradually ascends the levels above the mean line (0.00). Besides, the increasing divergence shows that the bulls have the upper hand. The fact that the price above the 50-day moving average means that Bitcoin is inclined towards sideways trading if not an upward movement.

1- Do not invest in every ICO – most of them are a scam.
2- Crypto is a heavily manipulated commodity and the price can change at any moment.
3- The creation cost of a coin represents the “wholesale” price – It is always better to buy when the price is close to the creation cost.
4- Crypto has a natural cash flow that dictates the selling pressure. Like, 1800 bitcoins are mine each day so 1800 bitcoin must be bought at the current price (“means market needs new $18 millions of investment every day if the price is $10,000 to maintain the current price“).
5- Patience and timing are key to making a profit:
Buy, when the price is close to the creation cost.
Sell, when the price is way high off the creation cost.
