BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.
The daily chart shows that BTC has been increasing since March 25. Yesterday, it briefly broke $60,000 before retracing slightly.
However, BTC has yet to reach a close above the $59,500 resistance area. It has not done so since it reached an all-time high on March 13.
Nevertheless, technical indicators are bullish. This is evidenced by the bullish reversal signal in the MACD and bullish cross in the Stochastic oscillator.
Therefore, the trend is likely bullish and BTC is expected to reach a new all-time high price.
The crypto top-10 by market cap remains unchanged this morning. Filecoin (FIL) has retained its #10 rank but is down 6% while the rest of the market enjoys some relief. Chainlink (LINK) is now less than $200 million from overtaking FIL and returning back to the top-10.
Helium (HNT) has been the biggest altcoin mover in the top-100. At the time of press, HNT was up by nearly 30% trading for $14.11. HNT has been on fire, gaining 75% in the past week alone.
AscendEX (BTMX) is today’s biggest loser so far. It’s lost 13% in value in the past 24 hours and is down by more than 22% this week.
