When looking back to mid-2017, the price levels correspond to key areas from BTC’s first run up to $5,000, in addition to the subsequent retrace and rally to five digits.

During the initial run to $5,000, BTC stair-stepped its way from $3,200 to $3,400 before jumping to establish a then-record high at roughly $4,400. BTC then established local support at $3,600 and then rallied to set a new record at $5,000.

After tagging $5,000, the $4,400 area comprised the shoulder line of the lopsided head and shoulders pattern that preceded the violent retracement down to $3,000. BTC currently has a market cap of $63.55 billion and a dominance of 52.9%.
