What pushed Bitcoin price above $30,000
The BTC price has surged by more than 46% over the last few months rising to a ten-month level.
Several analysts had predicted that Bitcoin would regain its $30,000 price tag as traders wait for the United States Consumer Price Index (CPI) report on April 12. The CPI is expected to give insight into the Federal Reserve’s battle against inflation.
The Crypto Fear and Greed Index has remained within the “Greed” region for the last week, with the latest update putting the score at 68 out of a possible 100. The Crypto Fear and Greed Index numerically present the “emotions and sentiments” toward the cryptocurrency market and Bitcoin.
The 68 Crypto Fear and Greed Index score is the highest Bitcoin has ever scored since it scored 66 on November 16, 2021, which was just days after Bitcoin hit its all-time high above $69,000.
However, despite the Crypto Fear and Greed Index score being high, a majority of technical indicators still point to a strong bullish trend which points to a possible long-term bull run over the next days.
