$BTCUSD

Bitcoin started to look good Friday, and it rallied through to a mid-day high at $9,020 Saturday, before a late afternoon sell-off hit the broader cryptocurrency market.

Bitcoin, could break through the 1st major resistance mark at $9,161.65, as investors locked in gains that led to Bitcoin falling to an intra-day low $8,505, before a slight recovery to $8,541.96.

Worries over what lies ahead for Binance and SKorea’s investigation into banks involved in the cryptomarket are immediate.

And the US government’s plans to include digital currency addresses of sanctioned companies and individuals into OFAC just adds to the market worries.

The move raises lots of Questions and brings more uncertainty to an already uncertain outlook, with cryptocurrency investors having to steel up through the Summer as the market looks ahead to the roll out of global regulations, agreed as an action plan during last week’s G-20, if they really do.
