Bitcoin (BTC) soared by over 5% on Tuesday to trade above $26,000 for the first time this week. A major contributor to this price rise was an increase in positive sentiment around the token as a result of Franklin Templeton, a $1.45 trillion asset manager, filing for a spot bitcoin ETF with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
However, as the market euphoria dies down, the premier cryptocurrency has experienced some market recorrection, with many investors now speculating on the token’s next movement. On this note, popular crypto analyst Ali Martinez has discovered a buy signal for BTC investors. However, there are certain conditions to be met.
$28,350 or $31,800, How High Can Bitcoin Go?
According to an X post on Tuesday, Ali Martinez states that the TD sequential indicator has produced a buy signal on Bitcoin’s weekly chart. Therefore, BTC could be set for a price rally after losing about 10.85% of its market value in the last 30 days.
