Having risen to the highest since mid-May 2018, the BTC/USD pair failed to hold previous gains as it trades near $8,770 during early Monday.

The quote’s earlier rally could be because of the weekend’s usually thin trading volume joining across the board weakness of the US Dollar (USD).

A technical breakout above $8,400, comprising multiple tops during the current month, might also be considered as a reason for the surge to $8,945.

It is also speculated that tweets from Binance chief executive Changpeng Zhao, indicating a break of $8,000, as well played its role in fuelling the quote.

With the global traders coming back to their desks, except the US and the UK, prices may have witnessed a pullback in search of additional clues.

In doing so, political plays concerning the US trade relations with China and Japan will gain higher attention amid no major data/events scheduled for release.
