Bitcoin on the verge of breaking through final resistance

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed that BTC / USD fluctuated throughout the weekend, remaining crucially above $ 60,000.

This week’s close was already seen as a deal breaker, potentially being the highest on record – just once before, Bitcoin has ended a weekly candle above the $ 60,000 mark.

With hours remaining, analysts were bracing for a potentially pivotal moment, which could usher in uncharted territory for the bulls.

“Another daily close of BTC above the red zone later today and Bitcoin will have confirmed a break beyond its last major resistance over the weekly period,” Rekt Capital commented.

With BTC / USD rising as rumors of the long-awaited green light struck at the end of last week, fears that the episode could turn into a “buy the rumor, sell the news” event remain. This could create volatile trading conditions.

As Cointelegraph reported, concerns also revolve around stopping the debut of physical Bitcoin ETFs next month, which analysts say will prevent the lion’s share of institutional capital from entering the space.
