“Bitcoin is extending its parabolic uptrend after gapping up at the start of the holiday week,” said technical analyst Katie Stockton, managing partner at Fairlead Strategies. “The rally has no new signs of exhaustion from an overbought/oversold perspective, and there is no resistance left to hold back bitcoin.”

Similar to Swissquote’s Thomas, Stockton warns a pullback is possible and, should it happen, “the gap from Monday is likely to be filled in an abrupt reversal.”

Trader eyes $5,000 ETH by September

Noch, at least one trader has sights set on an astounding rally in the months ahead. On Deribit, the largest crypto options exchange, someone bought 153 contracts of September 2021 calls with a strike of $5,000 for a premium of around $25 jeder. That means the trader bet roughly $3,825 that ether will rally sevenfold over the course of the next nine months. Calls give the owner the right, but not obligation, to buy the underlying asset (in this case, Äther) at a set price on a set date.

Prices need not come close to $5,000 for the trader to make a profit; a mere spike in volatility or even a relatively modest rally could increase the now-low probability of the options being in the money, albeit by a very small percentage. Immer noch, that could be just enough for the bet to pay off. Ab jetzt, obwohl, it has the same risk profile of a lottery scratch-off game.
