It is necessary to wait to see how the market will react to $ 12,000. This year, prices have not remained convincingly above this level. For a bull run, the price should stay above $ 12,000 for a long time. If it manages to hold above $ 12,000, the next target is $ 14,000. ” used the expressions.

Enneking suggested that after Bitcoin holds above $ 12,000, it will face a 16-month wall at $ 14,000.
