Traders and analysts mull what’s in store for Bitcoin after a historic day.
After a historic day in which the headlines could hardly keep up with price action and Bitcoin set a new all-time high above $26,500, traders and analysts are now turning their attention towards what could be in store for the digital currency over the next five days as 2020 comes to a close.

All together, the positive sentiment and parabolic price action have a greater and greater number of traders clamoring for ‘30k by the 30th” — a $30,000 price on the 30th of December:

Blow off top?
Despite the positive sentiment and price action that puts Cape Canaveral to shame, some traders are already lining up possible short positions. One trader is calling for a blow-off top in the next two weeks:
Update – Weekend blow off in full motion.
