The price of Bitcoin has surged more than 10% over just a few hours earlier today, with prices quickly surging from roughly $35,000 to tag just shy of $40,000 on July 26. Price action shows a violent short squeeze that occurred as prices broke above $35,000, with bullish momentum suddenly accelerating as prices quickly rallied 15% from roughly $34,000 to $39,800 over the course of fewer than three hours.
By contrast, BTC had taken the past five days to gain from roughly $30,000 to $34,000. As of this writing, Bitcoin is changing hands for roughly $38,500. According to CoinMarketCap, Bitcoin is the top gainer for the past 24 hours among the top 30 crypto assets by capitalization, posting a gain of nearly 13%. The sudden rally has seen numerous technical indicators return to offering bullish signals, popular analyst, Lark Davis, informing his 426,000 followers that BTC’s price is again trending above its 50-day moving average.
Polkadot and Chainlink are also among the day’s top gainers, each having increased by more than 11% in the past 24 hours. With Dogecoin up less than 9% for the day, it would appear the impact of Elon Musk’s Twitter account on the meme-coin’s markets is beginning to wane, with Tesla’s CEO posting a meme asserting that “Dogecoin is money” on July 25.
