Bitcoin was trading above $28,000 on Monday, as cryptocurrencies extended a bull run to start the week. This upwards sentiment comes as the Federal Reserve and other major central banks made coordinated moves to enhance market liquidity. Ethereum continues to trade close to $1,800.
Bitcoin (BTC) started the week trading above $28,000, as markets responded to the deepening global banking crisis.
The coordinated action by several major G7 central banks comes as Credit Suisse was bought out by rival UBS, a move engineered by Swiss authorities.
BTC/USD jumped to an intraday peak of $28,527.72 earlier today, which comes a day after trading at a low of $27,196.76.
As a result of the rally, bitcoin climbed to its strongest point since last June, with many now anticipating a move above $30,000.
Overall, this surge has sent prices into overbought territory, with the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) now tracking at 72.73.
The next visible point of resistance appears to be at 75.00, and should this be hit, there is a strong chance BTC will be at $30,000.
On the other hand, ethereum (ETH) consolidated recent gains during Monday’s session, as prices fell below $1,800.
Following a high of $1,843.84 on Sunday, ETH/USD dropped to a bottom at $1,744.86 to start the week.
This drop comes as ethereum bulls appeared to be securing recent gains, days after ETH rose to its highest point since last August.
Overall, some are attributing the decline to the RSI, which fell below a long-term ceiling at the 66.00 mark.
At the time of writing, the index is tracking at 63.74, with a floor at 62.00 a possible target for bears.
