The cryptocurrency market did not follow the scenario of last week and keeps trading near the zone of local maxima. Since the next pullback has not occurred and the growth continues, we can safely talk about the resumption of the qualitative upward trend.

At the same time, CME data show a decline in interest of investors involvement in Bitcoin futures.

As altcoins have recovered, BTC’s domination rate reduced and now is 52%.


Technical analysis of Bitcoin shows moving to an important resistance level of $6,000. In the case of continued growth and breakdown of the upper boundary of the channel, we should expect the resumption of a full-fledged upward movement. In this regard, the RSI Prediction Band also indicates bullish tendencies.
