The deal will aid people that lost their jobs because of the lockdown restrictions. The US dollar increased by 0.13 percent against its peers after crashing the two-year low last week. The rebound happened in a form of a short-term technical correction which was confirmed by the strong rejection with an intraday high of 90.13. This increased bitcoin’s potential which trades inversely to the US dollar with the continuation of the uptrend.
The 4-hour charts show that the price painted what seems to be a half-made Rising wedge channel. The bearish reversal pattern emerged as the asset trades inside the converging trendline and forming higher highs and higher lows. It is close to the apex of the structure that is combined with the decreasing volumes with the price falling by as much as the maximum height between the lower trendline. The current outlook confirms the rising wedge pattern and the crypto could climb as far as $25,000 in the upcoming sessions which means a correction of more than $1600 is about to happen. The current projection will refrain from slowing down the long-term bullish bias that is dictated by institutional capital.

Ruffer Management also bought $745 million as well. in the meantime, Guggenheim’s CIO Scott Minerd gave a $400,000 forecast for the number one cryptocurrency so it seems that 2021 will be quite interesting for the benchmark crypto.
