Bitcoin, Ethereum and their altcoin counterparts ripped through resistance, driving the cryptocurrency market capitalization back above $1 Trillion.

With earnings season and economic data driving both volatility and sentiment, BTC/USD pushed through $20000 while Ethereum held onto double-digit gains.

While fundamental factors continue to get priced in, Dogecoin was another altcoin that enjoyed an impressive rally this week. After Elon Musk successfully completed the highly anticipated Twitter deal, Doge rose by approximately 39% before peaking at a weekly high 0.08857.

Meanwhile, after weeks of trading in a narrow range, a bullish breakout allowed BTC and ETH bulls to gain traction, prices higher.

Although USD strength and rising recession fears have been weighing on major cryptocurrency since November last year, a rejection of technical support has assisted in temporarily muting the downward move.

While Bitcoin and Ethereum attempt to gain traction, the week ahead could pose additional threats to risk assets.

With a Fed rate decision, ISM manufacturing data and NFP (non-farm payrolls) on next week’s economic docket, any surprises by the Fed or Bank of England could provide an additional catalyst for price action.
