Yesterday evening Bitcoin (BTC) incurred a massive amount of buying pressure that led its price to rally to fresh 2020 highs of $9,500 before it found some strong resistance that led to a slight retrace towards $9,300.It is important to note that the cryptocurrency has been able to maintain above its previously established year-to-date highs of $9,200, which is a bullish sign that suggests this latest rally was more than just a fleeting surge.Now, one analyst its noting that BTC is caught within a bullish technical pattern that statistically leads to major upwards movements, with a break above this pattern’s upper boundary potentially sparking the crypto’s next parabolic phase.Bitcoin Rallies to Fresh 2020 Highs, and This Is Just the Beginning At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up 4% at its current price of $9,360, which marks a massive climb from its daily lows of $8,900 that were set just prior to last night’s massive upswing.Currently, BTC is trading just a hair below its intraday highs of $9,500 that were set at the peak of the rally, and it does appear that there is some significant resistance at this level.Importantly, the cryptocurrency was able to close above $9,200 on its daily chart, which may validate multiple bullish technical formations.“Positive volume flow, guppy flipping bullish, above the cloud with $BTC. Breaking 9200 is the magic number. Looks like we’ll get a kumo twist here soon as well in the near future. 1D Ichi on the 20, 60, 120, 30 settings has been pretty spot on with the twists,” Josh McGruff – a popular cryptocurrency analyst – explained in a tweet from just prior to the rally.Positive volume flow, guppy flipping bullish, above the cloud with $BTCBreaking 9200 is the magic number.

That’s It,” Galaxy, another popular crypto analyst on Twitter, explained in a tweet while referencing the chart seen below.Symmetrical triangles break upwards 60% of the time.That’s It.
