Bitcoin seems to be charging at $7,600 as it marks a slight increase of around 2.1% in the past 24 hours. The cryptocurrency seemed stuck in the same confluence price zone between $7,300 and $7,400 but has managed to break above it, and it now trades at around $7,550.
As CryptoPotato reported earlier, an important resistance level to watch for is $7,700, which is where the bullish spike reached out. However, to see a real market reversal, we would have to see Bitcoin closing above $8,000. In any case, it appears that we might be in for another volatile weekend.
At the time of this writing, Bitcoin’s dominance remains 66.9%, which means that altcoins are unable to claim any ground.
Almost all of the top 20 cryptocurrencies are marking either slight increases in the range between 0.5% and 1.5%, or they are in the red. The one that stands out, however, is Tezos. XTZ is up 8.65% against the US Dollar, and it currently trades at around $1,40. Tezos is also up about 6.4% against BTC, which is impressive, given the fairly slow market movements of late.
