Elon Musk Supports Bitcoin, Driving Its Prices Near $33,000

The BTC could reach above $33,000 and $33,500 in the near term. Bitcoin’s bullish bias is mainly sponsored by Elon Musk’s continuous support for the top digital currency, including Bitcoin.  

The gains in Bitcoin picked up pace after Elon Musk confirmed he held Doge, Bitcoin, and Ethereum. While speaking at the B-Word conference the previous day, Elon Musk confirmed that he had multiple cryptos. The digital assets he held included Bitcoin, Ethereum, and no other than Dogecoin.  

Musk repeated that he wanted to see Bitcoin succeed. His company Tesla had announced earlier in the year that it would start accepting payment for its vehicles. However, this agreement was later removed due to energy concerns by the company.  

Musk said that his company Tesla would “likely” resume accepting bitcoin payments again. This became one of the critical factors that helped the Bitcoin prices to stay bid.  

Stronger Dollar Fails to Drag Bitcoin Price Lower  

The gains in the BTC were unaffected by the stronger U.S. dollar. At the USD front, the broad-based U.S. dollar managed to extend its early session positive performance. Greenback remains in demand on the day as investors lost some confidence despite the number of COVID-19 cases involving the Delta variant rose globally. This raised doubts over the global economic recovery from COVID-19 and boosted safe-haven assets demand, including the U.S. dollar.

The BTC/USD price forecast remains bullish today. Therefore, the  forex trading  participants may look for placing a buy stop at 33,150 to target 33,908 and 34,665. All the best.
