Bitcoin is on a winning streak as it keeps on rising, touching today’s highest at $7,410. Meanwhile, a number of altcoins viz. Monero, NEM, and OmiseGo become the double-digits gainers along with a few others.
Bitcoin on a strong momentum, hikes consistently
Since mid-August Bitcoin has been managing to rise continuously despite constant ups and downs. After hitting $5,917 on August 14, Bitcoin only advanced upwards. At press time, Bitcoin has been trading at $7,375 with a daily trading volume of $3.9 billion. Today, it moved between the range of $7,246 and $7,410.
From here, Bitcoin will find the resistance at $7,400 and then further at $7,600 while $7,100 is the support line. Furthermore, Bitcoin is managing a higher low. However, the low trading volume does put a strain but if the support holds, the bulls will be in for a strong momentum.
Altcoins are also moving in tandem with Bitcoin that has the BTC dominance on 53 percent. But if we take a look at the volatility of Bitcoin, it is only decreasing. Since June 30, when Bitcoin hit its lowest of the year at $5,765, the leading cryptocurrency price has remained above $6,000. The last time Bitcoin hit the June-low has been in mid-November.
As pointed by a crypto trader in his Tweet as well:
24H Volatility retesting yearly lows…
Obviously my assumption is a massive move up due us being at 7300 (where the majority of shorts were taken in a tight range). Still in longs. pic.twitter.com/W6Hb81wyV3
