Following breaking above the symmetrical triangle, bulls were able to drive the price of Bitcoin above prior resistance at the March 2021 high, which currently holds as support, allowing them to set another record above $63,000.

With price action trading above both the 8 and 20-period EMA, both the Commodity Channel Index (CCI) and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) continue to test the upper bounds of their range, indicating that BTC/USD may soon enter into overbought territory.

However, the 100% Fibonacci retracement level of the 2021 move along with the upward slope in the RSI & CCI may continue to hold Bitcoin bulls at bay, with the next level of resistance holding at $65,000.
