- It has been on a wild ride the past few weeks, with buyers being in full control of its price action as it continues rising on a nearly daily basis
- Where it trends in the mid-term will undoubtedly depend on whether or not it can continue printing higher lows each week
- Some analysts do believe that a correction is imminent, although it remains unclear as to whether or not this will be enough to invalidate its uptrend
- One trader explained that the next bullish impulse higher could lead to a move up towards $40,000 or higher
- This would mark a parabolic rise from where it is currently trading at, but the price discovery mode that BTC is currently entering does open up the gates for a move like this to occur
Bitcoin has been rocketing higher as the rest of the crypto market stagnates. It is in the process of breaking above $26,000, with this marking a massive rise from its daily lows of $24,000 that were set roughly 24 hours ago.
The cryptocurrency’s parabolic growth as of late is showing few signs of slowing down, with each dip being rapidly absorbed and sellers being wholly unable to gain control over its price action.
One trader is optimistic that a move higher is imminent, noting that there’s a strong possibility that it sees an impulse rally towards $40,000 in the near-term.
Bitcoin Explodes Higher as Bulls Gain Traction
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up just under 5% at its current price of $25,800. This is around the price at which it has been trading at throughout the past few days.
The selling pressure seen in the upper-$25,000 region has slightly slowed its ascent, but bulls appear to be keen on breaking this level.
A firm break above $26,000 could open the gates for a parabolic movement towards $30,000 – which may be its first key resistance level.
Analyst Claims Next BTC Impulse Could Lead to $40,000
While sharing his thoughts on the current price action, one analyst explained that he is watching for Bitcoin to see a move up towards $40,000 if it forms a temporary top around its current price levels.
“Bitcoin breaking upwards even more as it’s approaching my second Fibonacci point of interest around $25,800. The higher we go, the higher the next impulse move will bring us. If $25,800 is this temporary top, next impulse could bring $BTC towards $40,000+.”

The coming few days should shed some light on whether or not this possible path forward will actually come to fruition for Bitcoin.
