Bitcoin surged by a solid $2,500 so far today, gaining almost 5% in value. This allowed the cryptocurrency to break resistance at $56K, surpassing $58K to set a new all-time high.
The primary cryptocurrency had been trading within an ascending price channel for the entire month of February. On Friday, Bitcoin had surged by 8.5% as it broke past the previous resistance at $52,365 to smash the upper boundary of the marked price channel, reaching the resistance level at $56,112 (1.414 Fib Extension).
From there, Bitcoin had failed to close a daily candle above that level. Yesterday, after setting a new ATH at $57.5K, Bitcoin had seen an enormous price correction of $3500 to $54,000. However, the bulls quickly jumped on the cheap BTC showing how strong the market is. Just hours later, and Bitcoin broke Saturday’s ATH to a new one set above $58K.
