The rest of the cryptocurrency market is in the green according to the cryptocurrencies live rates table. For instance, Ethereum is up 2.64% to trade at $204, Ripple price up 1.38% and exchanging hands at $0.2148 and Bitcoin Cash has accrued 1.1% in gains to trade at $244.

Looking at the daily chart, Bitcoin price is poised for more upward action. The RSI has made a comeback into the overbought region. A continued upward motion could spur more growth towards $9,500 resistance. Consequently, the 50 SMA is narrowing the gap between 200 SMA as a show of strength from the bulls. As long as Bitcoin stays above $9,200 before halving, the potential for gains above $10,000 will remain massive.
