After trading below $ 9,000 since Wednesday’s blow-off top, Bitcoin has bounced back strongly in recent days, culminating in a breakout in the past hour.
The cryptocurrency is trading for $ 9,150 at the time of this writing – more than 9% higher than the post-rally lows of $ 8,400 and an increase of approximately 4% in the last 24 hours. Still, BTC is still a few hundred dollars behind the $ 9,500 peak.

Bitcoin has room for rallies
The move beyond $ 9,000 is far from the end of the uptrend, according to top analysts.
A well-known dealer noticed that there is currently a strong confluence of reasons to be bullish on Bitcoin, even with the declining signals above seen in the charts:
- The funding rate for BitMEX, the amount longs pay for short positions, and the premium index, the difference that people pay for Bitcoin for BitMEX compared to BTC’s index price, are “still negative”. This suggests that longs are not yet overfunded.
- Bitcoin trades above the annual volume-weighted average price.
- BTC is above the 200-day moving average.
- The one-day Ichimoku cloud has become bullish.
- The block reward halving of Bitcoin is only 10 days.
The trader noted how strong the current bull trend is, adding that while you “don’t call and short-circuit THE Top, you can save yourself a lot of potential headaches just by waiting for the 1D market structure to break.”
