Bitcoin price prediction: through hardships to the stars - Bitcoin confluence

  • BTC/USD bulls push the price towards new highs. 
  • The technical correction may be short-lived. 

Bitcoin (BTC) hit $8,334 high before the technical correction started and took the price of the first digital coin back towards $8,000 handle. Despite a short-lived dip to $7,897, the coin was fast to return above the critical borderline, signalling that the upside trend is not exhausted yet. 

Considering a strong upside momentum, the correction looks natural as speculative traders tend to book profit before entering new positions. The current bullish run wiped out all weak shorts from the market and assured even the most cautious skeptics that the crypto winter is over.
