Not much has been going on with Bitcoin as it remains in a range in the daily chart. This kind of price action would be best capitalized by traders who are more inclined to ranging markets. A retest/break of the resistance around 8,500 - 8,700 and price hold above 50 MA in the daily chart is a good indication that bulls still have strength left to push the price.

Global market cap is at $224B, while BTC's market cap is at $149B.
