The world's leading crypto competition today raised a new intraday peak against $ 6,989 on US-based Exchange Coinbase, the best since 5 September, 2018. The persistent trend helped bitcoin to enter an online base of 122.69 percent. At the same time, the asset's annual performance pushed 83.98 per cent.
Moved reflected traders' willingness to buy bitcoin at newly created higher heights, which led to a parabolic formation. In retrospect, a parabolic movement occurs when an asset moves upward in an active bullish channel, performing an upside breakout after the other without sweating, and asking people to chase the prize.
In a parabolic action, speculators buy because the price goes up. They rarely care about the underlying basics that can / may not pump the asset. So, almost too suddenly, the price pursues a number of volatile downsides before establishing a full-fledged bear market (worst case scenario). Traders who may have bought assets during high season are the ones that are most burned.
A correction comes
Bitcoin, now in the midst of a bullish orgy, at least forms a traditionally recognized parabolic pattern. A young resource that is, bitcoin has seen similar parabolic formations three times in its decade-old market. The first two parabolic formations occurred in 2013, while the second occurred in 2017. Each one ended in a serious crash, albeit reigniting amazing upward movements later.
One cannot predict the length of the ongoing bitcoin parabolic movement. The long-term view puts the price anywhere over $ 20,000, as predicted by too many bitcoin bulls. But be careful, the longer the parabolic formation is, the greater the correction will be. For example, 2017 upward action reached its peak in nine months, but the correction was for over 12 months. Likewise, one of the 2013 dishes took eleven months to form and 13 months to bottom out.
Alex Krüger fitted the coupled bitcoins side action with his daily Relative Strength Indicator (RSI). The famous cryptocurrency analyst noted that the bitcoins RSI had stepped deep into their overbought territory, adding that the last time it happened was December 6, 2017.
"Last time BTC was this overbought (RSI) on a daily newspaper was 6 December, 2017, with a price of $ 13700, "Krüger said. "At that time, a parabolic move came out."

Bitcoin is Bullish, Anyway
That said , the bitcoin price can further train into its overbought territory, especially when mouthwash upgrades between $ 7,000 – $ 7,500 are within reach. But in the end, assets can look at a massive correction. Based on the height of the rising channel, the bitcoin's downside goal can quickly close below $ 6,000. However, bitcoin does not make a bearish resource. But the warning above may prove beneficial to those who have bills in the short term.
