Over the past few hours, Bitcoin (BTC) has started to show signs of a bullish trend. As of the time of writing this, the leading cryptocurrency has reached $8,290 — the highest price the BTC has traded at since the local top at $8,450 put in on January the 7th — from the $8,050 daily low put in on Monday.
While this 3% jump is far from a stable uptrend, analysts are convinced that the crypto market’s short-term rally isn’t done yet.

It isn’t only the short-term outlook for BTC that is looking strong; key indicators on a weekly basis have started to favor bulls.
Crypto Market’s Long-Term Outlook Bullish
Per previous reports from NewsBTC, Murad Mahmudov, CIO of Bitcoin fund Adaptive Capital, recently shared a textbook chart that applies to any financial market which shows what trends in an asset’s volume, open interest, and price mean for assets.
The chart shows that the most optimistic scenario for any market is if the asset’s price, volume, and open interest for its futures market rise in tandem, suggesting “strength,” “bullish” price action, and an overall trend of prices rising.
And what do you know! Bitcoin, over the past few weeks, has seen its price, volume, and open interest increase all at once, showing effectively no signs of weakness
On the technical side of things, the Lucid Stop and Reversal indicator, which tracks entries for Bitcoin and other assets, just printed its first buy signal since March 2019.
