Bitcoin price begins restarts the journey to $40,000

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator is a technical tool used to track the trend of an asset and calculate its momentum. A consistent rise from the negative territory to the area above the mean line (0.00) adds credence to the bullish outlook.
Moreover, the MACD allows sends out buy or sell signals, allowing investors to back the downtrend or the uptrend. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s least resistance path is upward. This optimistic outlook has been reinforced by the 12-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) crossing above the 26-day EMA).

A strong bullish trend like Bitcoin’s ongoing uptick tends to call more buyers into the market, thereby intensifying the tailwind for gains toward $40,000.
