Bitcoin price can still rally as high as $30,000. The bullish scenario is an unfavorable narrative based on the unclear technicals but still a valid reason for explaining a future moonshot impulse wave in retrospect. Don't sleep on Bitcoin price. It can still rally higher under erratic behavior. The first targets lie in the mid $28,000 zone.
For traders looking to take risks, the trade is justifiable. If this is the beginning of wave 3, then the BTC price must not breach below $20,690 under any circumstances. If $20,690 is breached, the BTC price could see a fall towards $16,200, resulting in a 30% decrease in current market value.
