Bitcoin is pushing higher this week but is finding $60k a tough level to break at the moment. BTC traded just a few dollars shy of this level today before selling-off, but if history repeats itself, this set-back will likely be bought and $60k will once again come under pressure. While the market continues to focus on the increasingly widespread adoption of Bitcoin, there remain legacy issues where the cryptocurrency was used for illegal activities with this week’s ruling by the CFTC on a massive Ponzi scheme the latest example.

The chart set-up remains positive for Bitcoin with the old trend support line still pulling the price higher. This trend needs to be followed with a break and close above this line another bullish impulse for BTC. All three moving averages are supportive and with the 14-day ATR around $3,500, there is enough volatility in the market for a new high to be made quickly.
