Bitcoin Hits Year-To-Date High
The price of Bitcoin soared on April 11th to break a historically tough resistance level of $28,700 and hit year-to-date highs of over $29,200. This comes after over $95.5 million have been liquidated from the market in just one hour with $40 million in short liquidations.
The green line on the chart below represents the price point that Bitcoin had struggled with numerous times in the past serving both as support throughout its bull run and as a ceiling for positive price action since mid-March. The highest daily increase recorded was 9.5% on February 15th 2023.
CryptoSlate Alpha’s analysts do not believe that this price movement is solely spot purchase driven but rather favor long positions due to perpetual markets being rekt with shorts being liquidated which is reflected in the upward momentum seen today.
