Bitcoin surged above $27K on Thursday, gaining over $800 (3.2%). The momentum allowed it to climb above its 50-day moving average, something it has been unable to do since early August.

We believe a move above $28K will attract even more buying interest.
Ethereum gained over 3.2% in 24 hours, briefly topping $1685, its highest level since late August. Technically, it has managed to reverse the downtrend, boosting optimism for Bitcoin and the entire crypto market.
