  • Bitcoin price soars within an ascending channel to settle above $7,500 in the journey to $9,000.
  • Bitcoin halving volatility seems to be getting in line as the event nears.

Bitcoin price has extended the price action above $7,500 a day after re-entering the $7,000 zone. This bullish action brought back the volatility in the market with the majority of the digital assets breaking some barriers. Ethereum, for instance, rose above $185 and is struggling to clear resistance at $190 while Ripple stepped above $0.19 and now focused on bringing down the resistance at $0.20.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin price managed to clear the hurdles at $7,200 and $7,400. There was also a flash pump above $7,700, however, the momentum was not sustainable. Instead, the price retreated to the current market value at $7,539.

Bitcoin’s trading above $7,500 is a key indicator that a pre-halving rally is likely. This is the second break in the month of April and if sustained could be a stepping stone for gains above $8,000. Bitcoin block reward halving is less than 20 days way and investors appear to be taking their position following the recent confirmation when Bitcoin corrected from lows at $6,750.

Experts in the market have predicted a surge in Bitcoin price to a tune of $70,000 per BTC in the first two years after halving. If past halvings are anything to go by, Bitcoin has a chance to rise above its all-high at $20,000. However, these are not normal times especially with the COVID-19 pandemic in the picture. Therefore, informed investment decisions are necessary.
