BTC is in the hands of the bulls, as seen by the general technical picture; a break above $65,000 would swiftly push BTC to $68,000. Bitcoin extended its bullish surge above $62,000 over the weekend, almost brushing shoulders with $63,000. BTC had not traded at this level since mid-April, right prior to the meltdown.
