Bitcoin (BTC) Still Needs to Break $5,648 to Trigger Next Leg to $6,000+

Bitcoin continues to move higher and is setting itself up for a push at $6,000 or more with the chart continuing to highlight a bullish bias. Last week we identified a gap that needs to be filled between $5,648 and $6,111 and this remain relevant with a close above $5,648 the first stage. We also have a ‘golden cross’ being made – 50-day ma moving above the 200-day ma – a bullish technical sign as momentum continues to turn positive. Higher lows continue to be made along with a series of higher highs off the February 8 candle.

Litecoin (LTC) – Bullish Descending Triangle?

Another chart that is now showing a positive set-up after drifting sideways to marginally higher over the past weeks. The sharp rally on April2/3 that sent LTC from $60 to nearly $100 has formed the side of a descending triangle with the base around $73. This base has been rejected twice so far. As the price nears the downward slope a sharp break to the upside becomes more likely, especially if LTC moves back above the 20-day ma. According to the CCI indicator, Litecoin is just turning out of oversold territory, adding to the bullish hue.
