Bitcoin Going Parabolic Again

The daily chart suggests that the price formed a strong support base near $6,560 before starting the current rally. There was a clear break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $7,630.
As a result, bitcoin climbed above the $8,000 resistance and settled above the 100-day simple moving average. The recent rise was stalled near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $10,564 high to $6,449 low.
However, the current price action, bullish breaks above the trend line and the 100-day SMA indicate that the bulls are aligning for the next rally above the $8,500 resistance.
The next major resistance is near the $9,000 and $9,100 levels. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $10,564 high to $6,449 low is also near the $9,000 level.
