The entire market is in green but with subtle gains between 0.5% and 3%.

As far the technicals are concerned, the Bitcoin price is in the middle of a rally that might not stop at $9,200. In fact, the short-term target is $9,400 while $10,000 in the ultimate level for the bulls in the medium term. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) within the overbought and still moving north.
