  • Bitcoin supporters tout the coin as digital gold again.
  • All major altcoins are on the move with ETH and XRP moving fast.

The cryptocurrency market has been recovering rapidly since the previous week. The total capitalization of all digital assets in circulation exceeded $307 billion, while an average daily trading volume hit $88 billion. Bitcoin’s market share settled at 61.4% after a short-lived collapse below 60% during the weekend.

Bitcoin cleared $10,000 and managed to settle above the psychological barrier amid a massive flight to safety and the decline of the US Dollar. Bitcoin is also viewed as a digital gold as its physical counterpart hit all-time-high during early Asian hours on Monday.

We remain positive on the overall precise structure for Bitcoin and do expect it to push through $10,000-$10,500 as part of its longer-term bullish technical profile. Even so, that range “remains a resistance band that Bitcoin will need to break above to signal its next move to resistance at $13,800, Rob Sluymer, technical strategist at Fundstrat Global Advisors LLC commented as cited by Bloomberg.
