After failing to set a new high during yesterday’s trading, bitcoin’s price is edging up once again to start 5th January.
At press time, bitcoin prices had increased $10 during the first hours of the day’s session to top $1,140, according to data from the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index.
The upward movements follow a pattern observed on 4th January, when the digital currency’s price appreciated sharply after crossing $1,100 before meeting resistance at $1,140.
With the move, global exchange averages are again within striking distance of the previous all-time high of $1,165.89 set on 30th November, 2013. Also notable is bitcoin’s highest-ever single exchange listing of $1,242, observed on the now-defunct exchange Mt Gox.
Yet, bitcoin prices have faced resistance as they have approached both historic benchmarks.
In the last 24 hours, more than 52% of BTC/USD orders on Bitfinex have been buy orders, according to BFXdata, though sell orders had mounted in yesterday’s sessions.
Still, developments could lie ahead.
As of 4:15 UTC, buy orders accounted for 77% of all trades on Bitfinex, suggesting upward pressure could be poised to mount.
