For the first time in several months, Bitcoin crossed the threshold of $ 5,000 for 1 BTC. Now the total market capitalization is about $ 200 billion.
The volume of world trade in cryptocurrencies increased significantly this week and reached 77 billion dollars. This shows that the enthusiasm and optimistic attitude of digital currency fans are much more optimistic this week. Some cryptocurrencies strengthened over the past 2 days and added in value from 10 to 60%.

Third place in that term has XRP, which trades at $ 0.36 per token. Litecoin holds its fourth place and is trading at $ 85 for LTC at the time of this writing. However, the takeoff is that Bitcoin Cash led the Bull Rally.
The real breakthrough in value was shown by Bitcoin Cash (BCH), whose price soared by more than 50% in the past 24 hours. After a small pullback, Bitcoin Cash led the Bull Rally and the highest growth figures. It saves the cost of more than 45 percent higher than in the past day.

Today, prices are much higher, but the Relative Strength Index can tell us that there are moments of overbought, which means that a bullish jump can reduce the scale.

This means that the growth potential is still there, and the bulls have all the opportunities to continue raising the price, though not for long. Following the path of least resistance, the bulls can still play in the area of 300 – 325 dollars for BCH. On the reverse side of the minimum, some solid foundations suggest that the cost now will not fall lower than $ 200-250.
