      Market Update

      Bitcoin (BTC) MET the start of U.S. trading with a bang on DEC. 1 as the Wall St. open sparked a run above $58,500.

    Analyst: $56,000 may have been resistance flip

      DATA from Cointelegraph Markets PRO and TradingView showed BTC/USD gaining 2% in an hour Wednesday, canceling out the majority of overnight losses.

      The pair had HIT $59,000 the day before in a similarly-TIMEd move before giving up progress to dive to local lows of $56,700 on Bitstamp.

      For Cointelegraph contriBUTor Michaël van de Poppe, hope was back that Bitcoin would now challenge firm resistance at $60,000.

      Looking to attack the highs here at $60K.

      As Cointelegraph reported, the area at and above $60,000 now represents the resistance level to beat and hold in order to secure bullish continuation.

      Recent events appeared to make such a scenario less LIKEly in the short term, as resistance intensified and support at lower levels conversely evaporated.

      Much like what happened earlier in the year with the $30,000 floor, however, hope remains that $50,000 will continue to form the line in the SAND.

      Wall's been pulled. Either they're done accumulating (30k wall was also pulled at the time), or VolQ is right.

      The November close meanwhile marked the first failure in a longstanding Bitcoin price model to capture BTC price performance. The floor model from analyst PlanB predicted an end-of-month price of $98,000.

      Ether (ETH) returned to within striking distance of $5,000, this accompanied by continued strength against Bitcoin.

      ETH/BTC hit 0.083 BTC on Dec. 1, marking its highest since May and almost challenging levels from 2018.

      “ETH is only +5% away from reaching new All Time Highs,” trader and analyst Rekt Capital noted.
