Bitcoin rebounds from $26,000 mark
Once again, the crypto market has not advanced much on balance over the past week, still quoting around $1,000 billion. Bitcoin, on the other hand, does seem to be resuming its upward trajectory and has rebounded from the $26,000 support zone. For months now, Bitcoin has been consolidating between the $25,000 and $30,000 mark.
The dollar has picked up recently, partly on expectations that the U.S. Fed will raise interest rates 1 more time in the coming months. Normally, this causes downward pressure on Bitcoin, among others. Only BTC has managed to attack toward $30,000. This may indicate that investors still see Bitcoin as a haven in the form of “digital gold.
Despite the recent recovery, Bitcoin is still in a wide trading range of around $5,000 and it remains to be seen whether the price will manage to break out of this in the near term.
