Bitcoin in the year 2014
We started out strong this year! After the traditional years end selling marathon where the BTC fell from its highest point yet, the $1200 area, we quickly recovered in January 2014 from $600 all the way up to $1000 again. Investors were confident that Bitcoin is the new goldmine.
The media coverage
It’s no surprise that the media was creating a fuss about Bitcoin considering that BTC is a commodity that suddenly exploded from $100 to $1200 in just a few weeks. Everybody was talking about Bitcoin in 2014. People were creating new businesses that solely relied on Bitcoin as a currency and even the government, the banks and the IRS were taking Bitcoin seriously. All this controversial publicity reflects nicely on the charts as well- it’s almost as if BTC became alive! Heck, even PayPal added limited support for Bitcoin.
What goes up, must come down
Surely something that suddenly rises to such heights must come down eventually and chill for a while to balance things out. This is exactly what happened throughout the year 2014, the BTC/USD gradually came down from the high losing the hard on it had from all the media fuss.
If you look at the yearly chart (above) you can see that we are currently at the lowest point yet ever since this whole madness started back in 2013. Because we are getting closer and closer to years end a lot of investors are raking in profits for a fresh start next year so the mass selling of BTC right now seems pretty normal to me. I am kind of disappointed to see that we broke through a nice solid support level in the $320 area though. Looking at this makes me believe that the maximum buying potential for BTC in 2015 shouldn’t get us higher than $600, maybe $750. It will need some serious super powers to get past that point.
Right now we are probably going lower from here as the years end is creeping closer and closer so don’t get too crazy when you wake up one morning and find that BTC is worth only $250. The $320 area support level was a serious breaking point and there’s nothing left to stop the selling any more other than the deliciously low price itself which will surely get investors back to buying, especially in the first month of 2015.
