BTC price has rapidly increased in the last week and continues to remain bullish even now without giving a pullback yet. ETH/BTC and XRP/BTC were both bearish in the last week as was the case with most other major alts who lost value in satoshi counts.

The upcoming week will show if BTC will be successful in its follow up breakout it is attempting at the moment and how much more value will alts loose in their BTC pairs.

BTC/USDT (Daily Chart)- Attempting follow up breakout

BTC/USDT gave a strong breakout last week which was followed by more than 15% price increase and the momentum is so strong that it is attempting to break the next resistance without a single pullback.
