The last time Bitcoin was at this level has been on November 14th, 2018 from where it dropped down to $3,200.

Currently, Bitcoin seems to be gaining momentum but has strong resistance at $5,900. Crypto analyst The Cryptomist says, we need to close the day above $5,535 in order to sustain this momentum.

“So we are breaking the previous rising wedge that dropped out from (lines from 4hr)

We also are breaking the RSI resistance; Previous channel and resistance line formed.

To sustain this momentum, daily needs to close above 5535. 5900 is strong resistance.”

According to Crypto analyst Altcoin Psycho, we could still go higher, “There's a chance we can still go higher, high funding rate + shorts severely underwater = potential impulse candle to the upside.”

Total Market Cap Adds $10 BIllion

Among the top cryptos, Bitcoin is one of the highest gainers while XRP, Stellar, Tron the least movers. However, some are still seeing good gains as the total market caps adds $10 billion and climbs to $186 billion.

Litecoin is the biggest gainer among the top cryptos with over 7% gains at $79.25 followed by EOS and Bitcoin Cash. A few coins are however still in the red but as crypto analyst Benjamin Blunts says, altcoins can shine as well if Bitcoin pulls back a little.
