Bitcoin (BTC) is in line for a continuation of its bull run, fresh analysis says, as BTC/USD retains its 2.2% daily gains.

$62,500 eyed for BTC price bounce

As data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView tracks Bitcoin’s best day for a week, confidence in higher levels is building.

Earlier Tuesday, Nov. 2, the largest cryptocurrency abruptly exited a sideways trading channel to add almost $2,000 in just over an hour.

Amid calls of a potential breakout, popular trader Pentoshi believes that $62,500 may be buyers’ only chance to “buy the dip.”

“$BTC any pullback towards 62.5k is a great bid zone to add,” he advised Twitter followers alongside an accompanying chart.

“Looks as tho consolidation could be over and ready to trend again.”

With the Wall Street open around the corner, confidence is firmly evident among market participants, with analyst TechDev calling for a march beyond all-time highs of $67,100.

Ether (ETH), the largest altcoin by market capitalization, saw a fresh all-time high of $4,482 Tuesday, days after its previous record.

The top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap were led by Polkadot (DOT), up 15% on the day at $52 — itself an all-time high after its own October rally.

Bitcoin de facto hit its “worst-case scenario” monthly close for October, thus remaining on course to see almost $100,000 by the end of this month.

Bullish sentiment is also coming from a resurgent altcoin sphere.
