On March 29, bitcoin (BTC) broke out from a short-term parallel channel, indicating that the correction is complete.

The BTC price has increased nearly 15% since March 25.

Bitcoin Resumes Bounce

BTC has been moving upwards since March 25, when it bounced at the $50,250 support area. 

On March 29, it created another bullish candlestick, reaching a high of $58,405. The high was important since it took BTC above the 0.618 Fib retracement level of the previous decrease — a level that often acts as a reversal. 

This is also supported by the movements from technical indicators. The MACD has created one higher momentum bar and the RSI has crossed above 50.

The Stochastic oscillator has yet to make a bullish cross but is very close to doing so. This would likely confirm that the trend is bullish.
