Bitcoin Analysis 

Bitcoin bulls weren’t timid to start a new week despite BTC’s price closing below an important trendline at $55k. In fact, bitcoin bulls sent the price over $57k during Monday’s daily candle and closed the day +$2,767. 

The 1M BTC chart below from wallyinstripes illuminates an interesting trend that’s appeared during the last two bull market cycles.

During those two previous cycles the large bull runs came only after BTC’s price broke above 70 on the Relative Strength Index [RSI].

While BTC reached profit taking levels for some traders on the 4hr chart on Monday, bitcoin’s 1D chart is still showing upside before traders may take profits above the $61k level.

Bitcoin bulls are very much in control of BTC’s price action above $55k and a lot more upside could be forthcoming if the $60k level is indeed breached soon.

For bears to get back on track they need to send BTC’s price below $55k but it’s been all bulls over the last 30 days as BTC’s price is +26% over that duration.

The Fear and Greed Index is 78 Extreme Greed and +7 from Monday’s reading of 71 Greed .

The XMR 1D chart below from zakpodmore highlights the key levels for Monero bulls to eclipse to send the price to the next level. 

If XMR can hold the $274 level then bulls will have a chance to again test the $328-$340 level. If Monero bulls can break that level to the upside the secondary target is $377.80.
