Bitcoin has managed to hold its market cap above $90 billion as the markets look to be winding up for another attempt to break through the next key level of resistance to the upside at $6,000. If the market can find continued support above $5,000, then another bullish move will seemingly take the decentralised asset back above a $100 billion valuation.

However, since breaking up from $4,200 at the start of the month and smashing through multiple long-term moving averages (such as the 200-SMA), the global asset is looking to build confidence for another break towards the $6,000 range The post Bitcoin is curling up to attack $6,000 as market order book depth stands above $300 million appeared
