Could U.S. Tariffs Be Behind Bitcoins Rally Towards $11,000?

Bitcoin has been able to extend the upwards momentum it has incurred over the past several days and is now nearing the key resistance level of $11,000, which was the price at which BTC faced a swift rejection that sent the crypto reeling down to lows of $9,100.

Now, some are theorizing that the United States latest set of tariffs on China may have sparked this BTC rally, as most safe haven assets are currently surging.

Bitcoin Climbs Towards $11,000 as Bears and Bulls Battle

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up nearly 2% at its current price of $10,770, which is up significantly from its daily lows of $10,400.

This price surge today marks an extension of the upwards momentum that Bitcoin first incurred last weekend when its price sharply dipped to $9,100 before quickly recovering and starting an uptrend that has sent the crypto back to its current price levels.

Importantly, a couple of weeks ago BTC sharply rose to highs of $11,000 before facing a significant sell-off that sparked a week-long downtrend. It remains unclear as to whether or not this price level will once again have insurmountable selling pressure.

Josh Rager, a popular cryptocurrency analyst, spoke about Bitcoins near-term resistance in a recent tweet, explaining that $10,800 is a short-term resistance level.

$BTC Weekly Chart: Currently, Bitcoin price is testing the resistance level $10,833: Price must not only break but want to see the price above on the weekly close in less than 48 hours. Support needs to hold above previous resistance at $10,590. Close above $10,833 is bullish, he said.

Did U.S. Tariffs Spark the Recent Rally?

This past week it was announced that the US will be placing additional tariffs on Chinese imports, which instantly led to a sell off in the global equity markets.

Importantly, many safe haven assets have surged in the time since these tariffs were announced, which may strengthen the Bitcoin Gold 2.0 narrative.

$BTC has rallied together with multiple safe-haven assets after Trumps latest tariff storm. Will the trade war continue to be a catalyst for #Bitcoins price growth? Binance Research explained in a recent tweet while referencing the below graph.

As the global economy continues to face instability, it is likely that analysts will gain better insight into whether or not this instability will prove to be a positive thing for BTC.
