Exhilarating Bitcoin Surge to $40K Fuels Optimism in KAS, RUNE, MNT and RNDR!

Bitcoin on the Rise: An Analysis of Today’s Cryptocurrency Market

Bitcoin (BTC) is making strides in the investment world, having broken through the daunting resistance of $38,000 recently and is pushing closer towards $40,000. This upwards trajectory indicates a bullish stance in the market. Market participants hope to see the trajectory continue in this direction, to create a strong end-of-year closing. Expectedly, pessimists are hoping for a price drop as the year ends.

An exciting development that might serve as a thrust for Bitcoin is the approaching decision from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC is predicted to greenlight a spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund in early January. Swan Bitcoin CEO, Cory Klippsten shared in a Bloomberg interview that the decision is likely to occur around the 8th, 9th or 10th of January.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

On December 1st, Bitcoin made significant progress by closing above the overhead resistance of $37,980. This marked the conclusion of the bullish ascending triangle pattern, setting a target objective of $41,160.

Market experts still expect a trend of selling into strength following this kind of event, a phenomenon typical of legacy markets, summarized in the adage “buy the rumor, sell the news”.

In usual circumstances, after a price breaks from a pattern, it retests the breakout level. With the bulls’ aim to transform this level into support, the likelihood of a rally above $41,160 increases. However, the bears are anticipated to put up a significant battle at $40,000. A drop below $38,000 may trigger stops for short-term traders.
