Just this week, we saw Bitcoin briefly touching $9,000 two times, where the second time we went to about $9,100 level only to drop below $8,000. But the flagship cryptocurrency didn’t break off its uptrend as analysts have observed and pointed out.

“We are re-testing previous rising wedge within the larger rising wedge as bulls remain within RSI pennant. A daily break of 8760 region will lead us back making this current resistance support once more,” says crypto analyst The Cryptomist.

Meanwhile, crypto trader and investor, Josh Rager shares how Bitcoin has pushed past previous resistance present at $8,731. This puts the next target above $8,846 from where we are off to mid $9ks.

While Bitcoin is back on the rise, altcoins are also enjoying the grees. Out of the top ten cryptocurrencies, Tron is leading the pack with over 11 percent gains at $0.04 all thanks to the announcement of an announcement made by Tron founder Justin Sun.

Just like Bitcoin, XRP and Litecoin are also up by over 2 percent while others like Cardano that is up by more than 8 percent are also doing really good.

Today’s top gainer is Komodo with 16.59 percent gains while Mixin and EOS have lost by 6.99 percent and 5.21 percent losses respectively.

This has the total market cap approaching $280 billion yet again as it currently registered at $277 billion.

However, there might be a lot more scope for gains for altcoins as the last time Bitcoin started the initial bull rally altcoins capitulated. However, after the first Bitcoin pullback, altcoins stabilized, From there, they went on a strong rally.

We already saw Bitcoin dropping 12 percent which led altcoins to bleed as well, by that it might mean altcoins will get their rally this time.
