Willy Woo, leading on-chain analyst thinks it might be a real deal. He tweeted,

Alts frothy, ETH getting a DeFi tailwind, volatility returning, BTC mempool peaking, BTC txs clogging, this is all great signs for the months ahead.

A technical analysis viewpoint suggests that consolidation above $9,700 range is critical. Tyler D. Coates, a crypto trader and analyst tweeted,

If we can support $9,600 – $9,700 over then next couple days then it could lead to a very familiar fractal…
A 1h Phase 3 that breaks through $10K, followed by a sharp Phase 4 that squeezes out shorts sure seems like a good way to break out of this range.

The surge in gold and silver prices during the week comes as a positive reinforcement for Bitcoin as well.

However, the stronger correlation with the stock market is still a reason to worry because of the rise unemployment rate and the global economic recessions due to the coronavirus lockdown. Nevertheless, the SPX index continues to battle resistance from the pre-COVID highs, the break-out in silver, gold and now Bitcoin is highly reassuring.
