Bitcoin (BTC) continues its upsurges towards the $50,000 mark. Technical indicators and BTC Fear &Greed index start to turn bullish.
The broad market and Bitcoin witnessed bullishness on Sunday. Regulatory chatter from NASDAQ 100 boosted BTC’s ongoing upside from January lows of $32,991.
Sunday sessions had Bitcoin rising by 2.4%, ending the day around $42,412. Bullish technical indicators saw the crypto hitting the high of $42,672 before a slight retracement. An optimistic cross of 50-day exponential moving average through 100-day exponential moving average might see BTC at $43,000 before today’s end. Remember, Bitcoin has never touched $42,000 and $43,000 zones since January 20.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s upward move had the crypto breaking past the initial critical resistance of $41,927. Also, the breakout saw the crypto overpowering the 2nd crucial resistance at $42,436, supporting the optimistic narrative late yesterday.
Elsewhere, assets presented lucrative jumps. Dogecoin (DOGE) outperformed the broad market with its 4.87% upswing. However, the upside could not take DOGE into the top ten list on CoinMarketCap.
