Bloomberg Intelligence senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone says he expects Bitcoin’s big rally to continue in 2021.
In a new December outlook on BTC, McGlone says BTC’s new line of resistance in 2021 will likely be at the $50,000 mark.
“Bitcoin will maintain its propensity to advance in price into 2021, in our view, with macroeconomic, technical and demand vs. supply indicators supportive of $50,000 target resistance, implying about a $1 trillion market cap. The $10,000 mark has shifted to a critical support level after serving as the crypto’s resistance mark since 2017.”
The report says Bitcoin is “far from overheated,” noting its foundation of support may be greater than back in 2015 through 2017 due to increasing institutional investments and a drop in new supply due to this year’s halving.
“The year 2020 will likely be looked back upon as key to Bitcoin’s mainstream evolution, in our view. Strong inflows in regulated exchange-traded products, futures open interest, addresses used and allocations from corporate treasuries, and some billionaires, solidify the 2020 annual price of about $10,000 as foundation support…
Demand measures of Bitcoin and crypto assets appear to be gaining endurance for more of the same in 2021. From the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) allowing banks to provide crypto-asset custody services to PayPal onboarding payments, clearing 2020’s volatility hurdle likely widens the path toward mainstream adoption.”
McGlone says the macro economy will also continue to serve as a headwind fueling both BTC and gold in the new year.
“The digital newcomer and old guard quasi-currencies stand to be primary beneficiaries of unparalleled quantitative easing, rising debt-to-GDP and an increasing focus on modern money theory.”
