New ATH renews faith in PlanB’s prediction of $98K BTC by December

  • Bitcoin (BTC) has broken into new all-time highs, with the asset last changing hands in the mid $67,000-range.

  • Crypto Twitter appears to be rejoicing over the new all-time high, with many onlookers appearing to read the price-high as restoring their faith in the Stock-to-Flow (S2F) model from the pseudonymous analyst “PlanB” — which has gained significant popularity due to its eerie accuracy in predicting monthly closing prices for BTC.
  • A recent Twitter poll from PlanB found that of 242,000 respondents, 39.8% believe Bitcoin will top out above $100,000 by Christmas, while 31.4% expect BTC to be trading for $288,000, and 23.8% anticipate the markets will fail to break above six-figures by Dec. 25.

Bitcoin price in classic ‘Bull Pennant’ breakout as BTC whales go on buying spree

  • BTC rallied over by 6% in the past 24 hours to reach a three-week high just shy of $66,500. In doing so, the cryptocurrency broke out of a consolidation range consisting of two diverging trendlines, a setup reminiscent of a Bull Pennant.
  • Bull Pennants are bullish continuation patterns that appear when an instrument consolidates in a Triangle-like price range following a strong move higher (called Flagpole). It typically ends up breaking out of the range to the upside, eyeing a profit target at length equal to the Flagpole’s size.
  • Bitcoin’s bullish setup received additional confirmation from an on-chain indicator by Santiment that tracks distribution/accumulation activities of the wallets with balances between 10,000 BTC and 100,000 BTC.
  • The metric highlighted that the so-called “Bitcoin whales” have been accelerating their buying spree.
  • Specifically, these entities accumulated 43,000 BTC (worth about $2.82 billion) in the last five days and about 92,000 BTC (over $6 billion) in the last 25 days, just as the price rallied to a record high near $67,000, corrected below $60,000, and surged back above $66,000.
