Bitcoin, Ethereum “relentlessly up”

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView captured a snap change of direction for BTC/USD, which gained $2,000 in just 45 minutes.

In step with various similar moves in recent weeks, Bitcoin not only reversed its previous short-term downtrend but eclipsed its previous record high of $68,564.

At the time of writing, the volatility was not done, as $69,000 came into view and with it the prospect of the psychologically significant $70,000 mark.

As Cointelegraph reported, that level was firmly on the radar of traders, who believed that any correction in the meantime would still end with fresh upside.

“Relentlessly up,” popular trader Pentoshi reacted.

“No dips given, just straight trending on $BTC and $ETH since 40.7k with a small period of consolidation. Will (bears) ever get it right?”

An accompanying chart described the that $40,000 zone as a possible “last dip ever” with Bitcoin now in price discovery mode.
