Bitcoin, Ethereum Technical Analysis: BTC Hits 2-Month High, Climbing Above $19,000

Bitcoin continued to trade higher on Jan. 13, with prices racing above the $19,000 level, hitting a two-month peak in the process. The latest surge comes as traders continued to react to Wednesday’s U.S. inflation report, which dropped to 6.5%. Ethereum also rose today, hitting a fresh multi-month high. Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC) rallied to a two-month high earlier in today’s session, as prices climbed above the $19,000 mark.

Following a low of $17,995.20 on Thursday, BTC/USD moved to a peak of $19,031.80 earlier in the day.

As a result of the move, the world’s largest cryptocurrency climbed to its strongest point since November 8, when price was above $20,000. BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Looking at the chart, the rally came as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) rose to a peak of 82.00, which was its highest mark in over a year.

In addition to this, the upwards trend on the 10-day (red), and 25-day (blue) moving averages continued to mature, thus extending bullish momentum.

Despite this, prices are now well beyond overbought, which could mean that bears are lurking and preparing for reentry. Ethereum

ETH/USD hit an intraday high of $1,432.28 in today’s session, which comes less than a day after trading at a bottom of $1,378.42.
