Bitcoin finally managed to surpass its previous price record just a few days ago after it established an all-time high of $19,825 on Monday.
Bitcoin’s rally has now driven its price up by more than 400% from its mid-March lows of $3,858. Since 2017, this marks the second time bitcoin came very near to testing the $20,000.
Rather than a rejection and bear market following the ATH milestone, this time around, Bitcoin’s most profitable buy signal has just triggered, according to BTC expert Charles Edwards. This fundamental tool suggests that this year’s high returns are just the start of what is to come.

Whether Bitcoin can stay firmly above the mid-$ 19,000 marks should give investors an idea of where it will trend by the end of the year. A healthy break above $19,475 or a drop below $ 18,875 can trigger a decision-making move for the benchmark cryptocurrency.
When considering this volatile price action, investors should beware of fake breakthroughs at all costs and seek additional affirmation such as high volume. BTC traders should note that consolidations seen below crucial resistance levels often signal that an asset is ready to break out.
