Bitcoin (BTC) rose back above the $25,000 level in today’s session, as market volatility eased, as the Swiss National Bank moved to prevent a collapse of Credit Suisse.
Following a low of $23,964.91 on Wednesday, BTC/USD rallied to an intraday peak of $25,240.62 earlier in the day.
As a result of the move, bitcoin once again broke out of a key resistance level at the $25,050 zone.
Overall, BTC is now trading 15% higher from the same point last week, with the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) at its strongest point since February 20.
