Bitcoin Breaks out of Longest Bearish Streak
After seeing its value gradually deteriorate over a record period of nine weeks, Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency on the market, has finally closed out a “green” week in the weekly charts.
Bitcoin, which opened on Monday 30th at $29,443, traded as high as $32,249 towards the end of the week, before closing at $30,600. The event sparked a rally for Bitcoin, which has driven its price even higher coming into the new week.
Bitcoin Continues to Rally
Despite investors showing signs of nervousness about the upcoming U.S. inflation data report scheduled for Friday, June 10th, the price of Bitcoin has continued to push towards greener pastures.
Over the last 24 hours, Bitcoin has gained in value by 5.8% to trade at as high as $31,453. In the event of a sustained breakout, investors are keen to see Bitcoin break resistance levels to trade above the critical $32k point.
