The MACD histogram is positive, giving yet another signal for growth. The signal lines of the indicator keep growing upon forming a Black Cross, which increases the chances for further growth of the coin. The Stochastic is slowly heading for the overbought zone, allowing a soon correction. Judging by all the factors, the BTC might correct on its way to 18,850 USD but then go on growing.
On D1, the picture is almost identical to that on W1: the pair goes on with the uptrend. The aim of the growth remains at the resistance level of 100.0%. The MACD is above zero, promising further growth. The signal lines keep growing in favor of further growth after forming a Black Cross. Both charts give a good chance for a correction before the ascending continues, heading for the same goal of 18,850 USD.

The aim of the pullback might be the support level of 17,000 USD. The goal of the growth is the same as on larger timeframes – 18,850 USD.
According to the information of the CME, the demand for trades with the BTC has overcome 1 billion USD, which is a new record for the exchange. Since March 2020, the volume has grown by 550%.

The increase in the BTC price pulled the capitalization up as well – for the first time ever it was estimated higher than 340 billion USD. Yesterday the capitalization approached 342 billion USD, which is the all-time high-frequency. For the last time, the record was renewed in 2017, when the capitalization reached 325 billion USD.
