Above is the 5-minute BTC/USD chart which shows the powerful surge in volume when the Bakkt announcement was made. The arrow shows the exact time of the release, prior to the story BTC/USD was trading close to 10,000.00 and bouncing off the mean value price for the day. Once the volume came in the 10,232.44 intraday resistance was taken out and a new high was made for the session at 10,475.00. This high is now looking vulnerable as sentiment has shifted to the positive side following the release.
