Inching closer to $6,000

Bitcoin has come close to surpass the psychologically important mark of $6,000. Over the span of one hour, the price of the number one coin increased by 4 percent, reaching $5,941 for the first time this year, according to the data provided by CoinMarketCap. BTC would need to touch $6,400 for the bulls to come in full force.

Despite failing to find support after breaking above several resistance levels, Bitcoin continues its streak of gains in 2019. As reported by U.Today, Bitcoin has already become the best-performing asset class this year.

A quick look at the two price charts shows that Bitcoin could ‘aggressively’ rise to brand-new highs after reaching that breaking point. However, considering that Bitcoin is a relatively new asset class, there is no point to blindly rely on these comparisons. On top of that, the price of gold was pushed by the launch of its first ETF in 2003.
