BTC has shrugged off all concerns over the recent hard-fork with the upward momentum channel from September 15 still intact, leaving the market open to fresh highs. The coin is also back above its 9-day WMA, adding to the bullish impetus.

We have been discussing the latest Bitcoin hard-forks and their price-moving potential over the last couple of weeks at our Weekly Bitcoin webinar on Wednesday’s at 12:00pm - if you would like to join us, please click here.

Bitcoin Cash Rallies Hard

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) also enjoyed a positive weekend with prices touching in excess of $520 before settling around $470 in European trade. BCH had been mired around the $320 level for the last two/three weeks before heavy Korean Won denominated buying sent it spiraling higher. BCH still remains a long way from its post-split high of $960, although the latest run-up may see the cluster between $520 and $640 revisited.
