Bitcoin price surges towards $40,000
Bitcoin (BTC) is off to a great start of the week and about to end July with a bang. BTC price has continued to rally since July 21 with Sunday’s current price rise representing the largest single daily gain in over six weeks.
Bitcoin was shortly back above $39,000 for the first time since June 16 and is six consecutive days in the green.
It is rumoured that a short squeeze appears to have driven prices higher as those betting on bitcoin heading lower had to sell in quick succession to cover. The exact reason of this squeeze remains unclear.
And folks, we have our squeeze. https://t.co/Lflcp7MZuw
