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

Bitcoin update

Despite BTC decreasing on April 7, it created a bullish engulfing candlestick the next day. This is a sign that buying strength is increasing. The April 7 dip has now completely retraced.

The RSI is trending above 50 and the Stochastic oscillator has made a bullish cross.

Therefore, it’s likely that the trend is bullish.
