Crypto Brief Nov.29: Bitcoin breakout signals bullish plus Ethereum, Ripple, Cardano, IOTA, Bancor, Binance news
From Bitcoin breakout signals bullish to Bancor planning an airdrop. These are some of the prominent news in the crypto space.
Since November 25, the price of Bitcoin has risen slightly more than 13%. After trading in a tight range for a few days, the price started a breakout and moved above the previous trading range.
The breakout is like the bulls’ relief, because of the continuous decline from $ 10,500 at the end of October without any retreat. Not everyone is ready with the new price increase, with many predicting the market will continue to fall further.
While lower time frames offer a bullish outlook, Bitcoin price is likely to recover once it reaches a longer-term resistance level.
Former senior market analyst at eToro Mati Greenspan said that after a breakout yesterday, the current Bitcoin seems to be ‘extremely bullish’. It is trading inside a bullish flag and in the process of retesting the neckline.

Bitcoin price has been trading inside the inverse head and shoulders pattern since September 22. Things have changed since yesterday, the price broke out to reach the small resistance zone of $ 7700 before retreating. The next resistance level is found at $ 8100.
The same resistance level was given by The Wolf Of All Streets, a popular analyst on Twitter. Resistance is found by the significant Fib levels, reinforcing the difficulty for price action moving above all these levels.

Quite the breakout while I was gone. Just pulled Fibonacci levels for the entire drop from 10K+. The 38.2% retracement up is in confluence with the next key resistance drawn on my chart. Good area to think about taking some profit if we get there (green box). pic.twitter.com/3aMrcsa7bk

The invention, “Prevent Anonymous theft by drones” from IBM, uses an altitude tracker activated by the Internet of Things (IoT). It will track the height of the package and upload data onto the blockchain platform.
