Crypto Bulls Rejoice As Bitcoin (BTC) Monthly Candle Closes Above Resistance

At the start of April, Bitcoin price broke through resistance at $4,200, triggering a massive rally across the crypto market and a cascading effect of trader’s stops being hit, creating an hour-long price spike of nearly $1,000 per BTC. Analysts believe the initial surge was caused by a single actor who had a strategy in mind, planning to cause as much price impact as possible.
Regardless of the reason behind the surge in Bitcoin price to over $5,000 where it is currently ranging, the powerful upward movement was enough to revive bullish sentiment throughout the cryptosphere. Now, as the April monthly candle closes bulls are rejoicing over the fact Bitcoin has closed over resistance for the first time in “ages,” and has even withstood the blow of the Bitfinex and Tether FUD that emerged just days before the monthly close.
