Bitcoin Surges Past $71,000, Signaling Bullish Momentum and Potential for Record Highs

Bitcoin recently marked a significant milestone by closing above $69,000 on March 25, indicating a bullish momentum reclaiming an important resistance zone.

This event, as reported by Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView, registered BTC/USD’s highest daily closure in nearly ten days, demonstrating a notable uptrend.

The surge was particularly catalyzed by a positive shift during the initial Wall Street trading session, where Bitcoin’s value increased by up to $4,600 within a single day.

This momentum carried forward, propelling Bitcoin past the $71,000 threshold subsequently.

Financial commentator Tedtalksmacro highlighted a shift in the market dynamics, pointing out that U.S. spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) experienced net inflows after a week of negative flows and significant withdrawals from the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC).

He shared, “After 5 consecutive outflow days, Bitcoin spot ETFs saw +$15.4M USD flow in on Monday. +262M from Fidelity.

“The bid is back.”

Despite the continued large outflows from GBTC, amounting to $350 million, BTC/USD managed to overcome these potential hindrances, signaling strong market resilience.

Market analysts are looking at the developments with an optimistic lens.

Matthew Hyland, a well-known trader and analyst, speculated about the potential for Bitcoin’s price to reach the $100,000 mark, especially if the current momentum can clear significant resistance areas.

He underscored this possibility based on a reset of a classic Bitcoin price metric that had previously aligned with a notable increase in Bitcoin’s value.

The daily relative strength index (RSI), a key indicator of market momentum, also showed promising signs, although it remained below the threshold typically associated with bull market conditions.

Analyst Mark Cullen, however, cautioned about potential volatility, pointing to “gaps” in the CME Group Bitcoin futures markets that could act as short-term price targets.

A specific gap below $64,000 was identified as unfilled, suggesting possible price movements.

Conversely, Daan Crypto Trades downplayed the immediate impact of these gaps, suggesting that significant breakouts often leave such gaps unfilled without necessitating immediate corrections, thus indicating a less pressing concern for a potential price dip in the near term.
