Bitcoin is currently trading either side of $54k after printing a one-month high of $55,750 earlier in today’s session. The rally, fueled by breaking above short-term trend resistance at the start of the month, has been relentless and has pushed BTC into heavily overbought territory, using the CCI indicator (bottom right of the chart). This needs to be washed out before BTC can continue to move higher. The CCI indicator has proved a useful tool recently, identifying trading areas where Bitcoin has been overbought or oversold.

Bitcoin (BTC) Consolidates Hefty Gains, Shiba Inu (SHIB) Soars Ever Higher

While the alt-coin has generally underperformed Bitcoin in the last couple of days, Shiba Inu (SHIB) has rallied heavily since the start of the month and is up around 400%. SHIB had underperformed the market over the last few weeks and not taken part in any alt-coin rally, the recent surge has bought the token back into the spotlight. While there is no quantifiable reason for the move, it looks strong on very heavy volume. This should add a layer of support if the market turns lower.
