• Bitcoin spiked to $19,100 amid growing bullish momentum.
  • On-chain metrics imply that the price has no significant resistance ahead.

Bitcoin bulls tested the water with a  short foray above $19,000. The pioneer digital asset hit the highest level nearly in three years at $19,100 and retreated to $18,880 by the time of writing. 

A retreat may be followed by another bullish assault

From the technical point of view, the local resistance is created by $18,800-$19,000 as it has been tested on numerous occasions since November 20.  a sustainable move above this area will trigger a new massive buying wave and push and open up the way to an all-time high at $19,890 and psychological $20,000.
