Bitcoin Could Soon Hit $13,000, Ascending Triangle Pattern Predicts
Bitcoin is on track to hit $13,000 in the near future as it continues to confirm a textbook bullish pattern, one trader has suggested.
Referencing how Bitcoin has formed an ascending triangle marked by higher lows and equal highs, he wrote in regards to the chart below:

Not everyone thinks this is a textbook ascending triangle, though.
As reported by Bitcoinist, one trader postulated that the ascending triangle is slowly converting into a rising wedge. A rising wedge looks similar to an ascending triangle, but is actually seen as a textbook bearish pattern as it often precedes retracements.
The trader in question remarked that Bitcoin may be in dangerous territory because the rising wedge is forming, along with bearish divergences:

How Fundamentals Could Boost BTC Further
Fundamentals are expected to push the leading cryptocurrency higher, likely towards $14,000, then $20,000 according to Mike Novogratz.
The Galaxy Digital chief executive said to CNBC earlier this month that the increase in money printing by central banks will boost Bitcoin. This is likely in reference to how the supply of the leading cryptocurrency is fixed whilst fiat monies can be printed at will.
As Bloomberg wrote on Novogratz’s recent comments:
Other fundamentals set to strengthen Bitcoin’s case for upside include the increase in circulating USDT, Dave Portnoy buying BTC, and an increase in the hash rate.
