- Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto market are currently flashing some signs of tempered strength as most assets push higher
- BTC is still caught within a consolidation phase within the lower-$11,000 region
- Strength in other assets, like Ethereum, may help guide the benchmark crypto higher in the days ahead
- One analyst is now noting that BTC is about to post one of the most bullish monthly candles it has seen since late-2017
- As long as BTC’s price remains steady throughout the next couple of hours, this will be the first time that its price has closed its monthly candle above $10,700 in nearly three years.
Bitcoin and the entire cryptocurrency market are still incredibly hot, with many tiny altcoins seeing unprecedented daily returns while major assets like Ethereum and BTC continue slowly pushing higher.
It appears that this latest upswing is different from those seen in months past, as there has yet to be a “rug-pull” scenario that results in the crypto seeing a sharp retrace.
While looking towards Bitcoin’s monthly candle, one analyst is noting that the cryptocurrency is about to post one of the strongest seen since late-2017.
He also notes that this will be the first time BTC has closed this candle above $10,700 since December of 2017.
Bitcoin Shows Signs of Strength as Ethereum Pulls It Higher
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up just under 1% at its current price of $11,110.
BTC has been trading around this price level throughout the past few days, struggling to gain any clear momentum from here.
It does face some heavy resistance in the mid-$11,000 region, but it may be building up strength as it consolidates above multiple crucial support levels.
In order for it to push higher, the two key levels that must be broken sit at $11,400 and $11,600.
Ethereum’s push towards $350 today helped provide a tailwind for BTC, but it remains unclear as to how high this will ultimately lead the crypto.
BTC is About to Post an Ultra-Bullish Monthly Close
While looking towards Bitcoin’s monthly candle – which is about to close in the coming hour – one analyst explained that it is the strongest seen in quite some time.
He also notes that this will be the first time it has closed above $10,700 since mid-December of 2017.
“Good time to zoom out & take a deep breath… 1M chart looking to close above $10.7k for the first time since Dec 2017… which was the only time it did so. $14k next line in the sand. 1W chart shows intermediate resistance at $11.6k with a BTFD zone from $9.7-10.7k.”
