Bitcoin (BTC) is flashing green, having convincingly scaled a key technical resistance Monday, and looks set to test the $7,000 mark in the next few days.

The short-term bearish-to-bullish trend change, as indicated by BTC’s break above the significant obstacle of $6,450, will likely entice investors to bargain-hunt, creating an upward pressure on BTC prices.

BTC closed (as per UTC) at $6,618 on Monday, confirming a bullish falling channel breakout. Further, the 5-day and 10-day moving average (MA) is biased to the bulls (sloping upwards), having witnessed a bullish crossover over the weekend.

The positive print indicates the money is flowing into bitcoin and adds credence to the bullish falling channel breakout…
