BTC knocks on the door of $10,000

Data from Cointelegraph Markets and CoinMarketCap tracked BTC/USD as it passed the seminal $9,500 barrier on Thursday — its highest price since February 24. 

After spending the week building support in the mid $8,000 range, Bitcoin saw a dramatic surge, regaining $9,000 and going on to hit local highs of $9,630 at press time.

Weekly gains for Bitcoin investors topped out at 9.2%, with year-to-date performance, already far in excess of gold or other macro assets, at 34%.

10-month downtrend over?

As Cointelegraph reported, the past two weeks have been marked by Bitcoin decoupling from stock markets, challenging years-old habits to strike out on its own. At the same time, misgivings remain about the strength of the current market.

$9,500 has yet to cement itself as a support level, given that the area forms major resistance as markets near five figures after an almost three-month absence.

Nonetheless, analysts were turning positive, with Cointelegraph Markets’ Keith Wareing noting that Bitcoin had now broken out of a longer 10-month downtrend.
