Bitcoin is up by 2.2% today as the coin increased by $2,300 from today’s low of $50,627 to set a new ATH price at $52,943.
Overall, the cryptocurrency has managed to surge by 10% over the past week after breaching the $50,000 level on Wednesday to reach the resistance level at $52,365 (short-term 1.414 Fib extension). BTC has been battling with this resistance over the past 48 hours as it has been unable to close a daily candle above it so far. It will be interesting to see if Bitcoin can make it in today’s daily candle.
Looking at the larger picture, the cryptocurrency is trading within an ascending price channel since the beginning of February and over the past two weeks, while finding support upon the midline (equilibrium).
Since February 8th, when Bitcoin broke above the previous ATH at $42K, all daily candle closes were above the support.
