Bitcoin targets $46,000 via this bullish pattern
In a recently published tweet, founder of Crypto Capital Venture Dan Gambardello stated that he expects the next target for the Bitcoin price to be $46,000.
He believes the price surge may happen as Bitcoin is going through a Head & Shoulders inverse pattern.

Here's what's pushing BTC price up: IntoTheBlock
On-chain data vendor IntoTheBlock has shared a possible reason for Bitcoin demonstrating a rise over the past few days. On April 11, the global flagship cryptocurrency dropped below the $42,900 level and hit a low of $39,000 on April 18.
Today, Bitcoin has added 2.89%, rising from $41,367 to $42,563.
Data provided by IntoTheBlock shows that the Bitcoin price is being propelled by its close correlation to the Nasdaq and S&P 500 indexes.
The latter is showing a rise at the moment, trading at $4,459. It has recovered from $4,391. The Nasdaq Composite index is also showing a rise, going up to 160 EUR from 158 EUR.
On March 29, the S&P 500 was trading at $4,631, while Bitcoin was changing hands at $47,536.
The correlation between Bitcoin and traditional financial markets is at its highest value of 2022 so far.

High correlations that pushed it down early in the year with the S&P500 or Nasdaq appear to be the force propelling it back up.
