Bitcoin’s (BTC) price rebounded yesterday, spiking by $400, in a few hours as the altcoin markets rallied along with BTC.
Bitcoin price bounces back
The world’s number one cryptocurrency rallied from its intraday low of about $8,200 to as much as $8,600, recording impressive gains of over 5% in 24 hours. At the time of writing, BTC is trading at $8,589.33, up by 4.46% as per data from CoinMarketCap.
Furthermore, the altcoin markets, for the most part, are all spiking in unison with BTC with several seeing double-digit gains.
Bitcoin’s price saw a break above the key $8,500 resistance area yesterday. Moreover, many crypto analysts have stated that a possible bounce back to further highs is possible, as long as BTC remains above the $8,000 support area and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Yesterday saw a new weekly high form for BTC at $8,691 and the price is currently consolidating gains. It has since begun correcting below the $8,600 level. Moreover, the current 23.6% Fib retracement level of BTC’s recent rally from the low of $8,124 to the intraday high of 8,691 high is acting as a decent support.
Furthermore, there is a short term breakout pattern developing with support close to $8,540 on BTC/USD’s hourly chart.
