If Bitcoin can reclaim $8,700, a push past $9,000 is likely, say analysts
While Bitcoin may have stabilized at around the $8,500 range after concerns arose yesterday following the coin’s dip to around $8,500. Analysts are now predicting that if the coin can make a move to $8,700, Bitcoin will have the momentum required to push through $9,000.
Bitcoin set a new yearly high recently, briefly touching $9,000. The surge resulted in a slight pullback, however, bringing the rest of the market down with it. It seems the bulls are once again in control as at the time of writing BTC is up 3.10% to $8,569.44. One analyst suggests BTC might be testing higher in the short term:

As Cryptoeasy points out, the best case scenario would see Bitcoin retest, reclaim, and then hold above the 0.618 Fibonacci Retracement level of between $8,000 and $9,100, which is sitting just short of $8,700.
Popular crypto trader, Josh Rager made a similar point. He says “A cross and hold above $8,731 would be bullish for a push back up to over $9,000.”

Additionally, head of Ikigai, Travis Kling took a moment to celebrate the crypto market’s performance over the month of May. He explains that Bitcoin put in its first top five monthly performance since 2013, rallying 158% since its December lows. If it does another 168%, BTC will be trading at $23,000.
