Bitcoin (BTC) price has at last crossed above the $8,300 resistance, setting the digital asset up for a run at $8,500 and restoring bullish momentum to the current uptrend which has seen the price rise from $7,655 to $8,536 over the past week.

For the second time in a week, the price rose above the oft-referenced descending channel trendline which has served as a long term resistance for the last 7 months. While there are some traders who will have bought the breakout above resistance, cautious traders will closely watch the 4-hour close to see if the digital asset sustains above the trendline as previous price action shows Bitcoin repeatedly unable to hold above this level.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin continues to push higher, setting a daily higher high for the first time since the Jan. 8 run up to $8,464 and clearing the $8,500 resistance level. Earlier in the day, Cointelegraph contributor filbfilb suggested that: 

“Bitcoin price is currently consolidating above resistance and the most significant volume node on the visible profile visible range, or VPVR. If Bitcoin can complete bullish consolidation above $8,000, a measured move to the upside would take the price of Bitcoin to the top of the previous range at $9,500 and possibly as high as the next high volume node of $10,100.” 

Currently, Bitcoin price is above the 200-day moving average and the most recent price action suggests that $8,000 will function as strong support. Traders will now observe to see whether $8,300 will flip from resistance to support.

The overall cryptocurrency market cap now stands at $223.8 billion and Bitcoin’s dominance rate is at 68.1%. Notable altcoins that moved alongside Bitcoin’s price increase were Bitcoin SV (BSV) with a surprising 22.87% gain, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) with a 6.46% gain, Litecoin (LTC) at 6.46% and Dash (DASH) which surprised investors by continuing last weekend’s rally to gain 14.32%.
