BeInCrypto presents our daily morning roundup of crypto news and market changes that you might have missed while you were asleep.



Bitcoin update

Bitcoin (BTC) has been increasing since bouncing from support on March 25. While the increase has been significant, BTC has stalled near the $60,000 level. It’s been struggling to move above it since March 30. 

However, technical indicators are bullish. The MACD has given a bullish reversal signal, the RSI has crossed above 50, and the Stochastic oscillator has made a bullish cross. 



Therefore, BTC is expected to eventually break out from this minor resistance level.
