The bulls kept on the momentum at the Bitcoin market on Tuesday as speculation continued that the largest crypto could regain its record highs.
The flagship crypto remained above $57k at the time of writing, while the wider crypto market fell significantly. Almost $65k is in sight as Bitcoin is up 90% from its low in July
Prices have held within a tight range this week, with a low of $53.6k and a high of $56.4k. Despite the market holding onto gains from the September lows, on-chain activity has started to rise.
The latest rally was fueled by many reasons as they were in previous rallies. An easing of concerns about regulatory efforts in China and the U.S. is among the latest signs of this trend.
Meanwhile, hopes are rising that a Bitcoin ETF may be approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
In order for Bitcoin to reach $60k, a new catalyst must emerge, and a quick one might lead to record highs.
In terms of relative strength, Bitcoin is around 70, indicating it is hovering in overbought territory. While the digital coin is volatile, best efforts to determine its future can be overwhelmed by its erratic swings.

In another virtual meeting of the Institute of International Finance annual membership meeting, Dimon said, “Blockchain can be real and stablecoins can be real.”. “Government is going to regulate them, regardless of what people think,” he said.
