In Brief
The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations building standards of transparency.

The Bitcoin (BTC) price increased slightly last week and reached its highest-ever weekly close.

BTC is expected to break out above the current horizontal resistance area and reach a new all-time high price.

Highest-ever weekly close

BTC increased slightly last week, going from a low of $55,473 to a high of $61,500. It managed to close at $60,002, which was simultaneously the first close above $60,000 and the highest-ever weekly close. 

There are some signs of weakness, however. There is a decreasing momentum in the MACD and a bearish divergence developing in the RSI. However, the RSI has yet to reach its divergence line and the MACD has not yet made a bearish reversal signal. 

Therefore, the signs are not sufficient enough to predict that a top has been reached.
