Is bitcoin set for another surge?

Bitcoin $26,000?

If history repeats itself (spoiler: it usually doesn’t), bitcoin could see a huge run in the next two months, according to Cointelegraph analyst Keith Wareing .

Why? Look to the cross... the “golden cross.”

Yes, bitcoin’s (COINDESK:BTCUSD) ascending 50-day moving average recently crossed over its 200-day moving average, a rare occurrence that had other popular crypto pundits chiming in on Twitter (NYS:TWTR)  :

As Wareing pointed out , the last time bitcoin saw this kind of bullish action, the price shot up 170% in less than two months.

Meanwhile, optimism continues to bubble over among crypto bulls, like Max Keiser, who just raised his target from $100,000 to $400,000 .

“I first made this prediction when it was $1, I said this could go to $100,000,” he said Monday on InfoWars. “I’m raising my official target for the first time in eight years, I’m raising it to $400,000.”

At last check, bitcoin was trading at $10,143.
