Bitcoin climbed by almost 5% so far only today, allowing the cryptocurrency to break the previous ATH at $61,781 and set a new one surpassing $63k, as of writing these lines. This breakout comes exactly one month after setting the previous all-time high on March 13, 2021.
Before surging to the new peak today, bitcoin struggled to produce a daily closing candle above $60,000 in April. It had dropped as low as $55,400 toward the end of last week as it started to recover from there. On Saturday, bitcoin spiked above $60,000 but still failed to close a daily candle above the resistance.
It continued to struggle to close above $60,000 on Sunday and Monday. However, the strong breakout today, as reflected on the daily RSI indicator, suggests that the candle should certainly close above $60,000; however, in crypto as in crypto, everything is possible.
