From its December peak around $20,000 to its most recent trough seen earlier this year, bitcoin slumped 60%, but the largest digital currency has rebounded nicely in recent weeks. Bitcoin prices broke through the $9,300 level Tuesday and some market observers believe the digital currency can continue marching to $10,000.
Bitcoin’s rally above $8,000 and now $9,000 comes just a couple of weeks after the cryptocurrency committed a death cross, where its 200-day moving average fell below its 50-day line. The death cross is normally bearish, but it needs to be validated, something bitcoin did not do.
“After the Feb. 5 low, Blue Line Futures President Bill Baruch told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” he saw a move up back up to $10,000. At that time, bitcoin was trading around $7,200. Tuesday morning, bitcoin was trading above $9,200, representing roughly 28 percent upside since that time,” reports CNBC.
