At the time of writing, Bitcoin trading up roughly 1% at its current price of $9,300, which is the highest point that it has been trading at over the past 24 hours.

Bitcoin’s short-term bullishness came about after the crypto briefly visited $9,150 yesterday, which appears to be a near-term level of support that could bolster the cryptocurrency’s price action in the near-term.

BTC Caught in Wide Descending Channel
