Goldman Sachs Analysts’ Slide Suggests Now’s a Good Time to Buy Bitcoin – CoinDesk

0

Market intel from Goldman Sachs suggests investors should capitalize on the current price dip and buy bitcoin.

In a series of slides prepared by a technical analysis team and sent out to some institutional clients, Goldman included one that said the short-term target for bitcoin (BTC) is $13,971 and that investors should consider buying on any dips in the current scenario.

The investment bank said that, based on its Elliott Wave analysis, BTC would find support around $11,094, and that there’s scope for a move higher to $12,916, then $13,971.

“Any such retracement from $12,916-$13,971 should be viewed as an opportunity to buy on weakness as long as it doesn’t retrace further than the $9,084 low,” the slide said.

It should be noted that the prices used for the analysis don’t include weekend prices and are likely from futures market data.

While this technical analysis seems bullish on bitcoin, Goldman Sachs’ CEO and chairman has previously said bitcoin just isn’t his thing. Lloyd Blankfein said in an interview last June that bitcoin is “not for me … I don’t do it. I don’t own bitcoin.”

Rumors that Goldman would launch a crypto trading desk and custody service have been reportedly put on hold over the uncertain regulatory scene in the U.S.
