My technical analysis tells me BTC is going to break out of it's closing wedge soon, aiming for highs again! perhaps not as high as it once was, but possibly the 11k mark.
My stronger opinion however is that BTC is going to die in the next few years. It's currently only required in order to purchase other cryptocurrencies. The transaction times and fees have quickly become dated with the likes of Litecoin etc being far more superior. I personally would stay away from any and all cryptocurrencies just due to the uncertainty of the markets at this time.
I think I'll stick to the foreign exchange markets for now :P
