Chart from Sigma by Hydra X
Patient longs have been rewarded as Bitcoin has gone parabolic, in a rally of remarkable proportions, even for Bitcoin. BTCUSD has surged beyond resistance at ~$7,250, and gone on to break $8,000, touching a new yearly high of $8,169.
Its surge has also boosted most of the major cryptocurrencies and added ~$30b to the overall cryptocurrency market capitalisation. This has been a move supported by volume and the ‘whales’ of the industry; tracking data showed the rally supported by trading from large bitcoin holders, with the single biggest whale moving some 47,000 bitcoin into the markets. Next meaningful resistance is in the $8,250 region.
