Today, November 19, 2017, @ approximately 19:44 UTC (2:44 pm EST), Bitcoin went over the $8000 mark.
Will it go down a bit? Possibly. The point is that it continues to snake upward. Remember, high volatility is inherent in cryptocurrency marketplace. That is, price increases and decreases change on a dime. But that is OK because Bitcoin always recovers and comes back stronger. So, knowing that will keep you balanced in mind and not panicky.
