Indicator Shows Bitcoin Isn’t at a Macro Top… Yet
According to a tried-and-true trend indicator, Bitcoin is not at a macro trend high just yet.
One cryptocurrency analyst using this indicator shared the chart below on August 23rd. The chart shows BTC’s price action since the start of 2019 in relation to this indicator.
Per his interpretation of the indicator, Bitcoin begins to near a macro high whenever the indicator crosses above 400. Also, BTC is likely to enter a period of consolidation whenever the trend indicator moves above 200.
Applying this framework to the recent price action, the analyst explained that the Bitcoin market likely isn’t “overheated” at this moment.

Where Will the High Be?
With Bitcoin seemingly not yet at a macro high as per the indicator, that raises the question of where the top will be. Considering the importance of 400 to the indicator, it seems that the top may be close, especially if the next leg higher happens shortly.
But according to a number of Wall Street veterans in the Bitcoin market, the cryptocurrency still has a long way to run.
Dan Tapiero — the co-founder of DTAP Capital, Gold Bullion International — commented that Bitcoin is looking poised to rally 5-10x this market cycle:

Raoul Pal, the CEO of Real Vision and a Wall Street veteran, echoed this sentiment. He wrote in previous analyses that Bitcoin could hit $100,000 in the coming two years.
