(Bloomberg) -- In a packet of slides sent to clients yesterday, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. technical analyst Sheba Jafari said that Bitcoin could go up by 23% in the short term, and that later the coin could go even higher. That doesn’t mean the bank is bullish on Bitcoin, though.The views “are not an ‘official view’ of Goldman Sachs,” cautions a note introducing the 28-page packet of slides titled “The Charts That Matter Next Week.” The bank sends such packets to clients weekly to highlight market trends to watch out for.Based on technical analysis, investors should use retrenchment “as an opportunity to buy on weakness as long as it doesn’t retrace further than the 9,084 low,” Jafari said. Bitcoin dropped 11% since June 26, and is now at $11,365. She predicted it could climb to as much as $13,971.The Bitcoin chart
