BitTorrent price prediction
The four-hour chart shows that the BitTorrent price has been in a strong bullish trend in the past few weeks. It has risen by more than 22% from its lowest level in September.
Along the way, it has moved above the 23.6 % Fibonacci retracement level. It has also risen above the 25-day and 50-day moving averages. Indeed, the two averages have made a bullish crossover pattern.
Therefore, the BTT price will likely keep rising as bulls target the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.0038, which is about 8% above the current level. However, a drop below the support at $0.0033 will invalidate the bearish view.
