Weekly close could set 4-week high

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD maneuvering around the upper $41,000 zone Sunday.

Friday’s late surge had broadly held, and Saturday saw a return of $42,400 on Bitstamp, matching the high from the start of March.

Now, the weekly chart looked set to deliver Bitcoin’s best weekly close since early February.

“This could change anytime, but frankly the Bitcoin price chart currently looks better than it has for quite a while now,” analyst Lyn Alden summarized at the end of last week.

Previous takes had cautioned about a real shift occurring in BTC price action, with popular trader Pentoshi warning that a potential uptick would likely not last and ultimately become the precursor to new lows.

Fellow Twitter analyst Credible Crypto meanwhile presented two likely trajectories for BTC/USD based on daily demand holding the market at a specific price.

One option involved a break of $42,500 followed by $45,000, while its bearish counterpart delivered a bottom target of $29,000-$32,000.

An update to this idea- daily demand held and if we are seeing Option 1 play out- the triangle structure may now actually already be complete. If this is the case, it will become VERY clear in the next couple days. Starting with a break of 42.5k and 45k shortly after. $BTC

On longer timeframes, however, confidence was palpable.

“As long as price continues to close above 34k on the W3 timeframe, this hidden bullish div is likely to play out and send us to new ATH,” Credible Crypto added in another update Sunday.
