The surge in BTC’s price put the buyers back in control of the market, as can be gleaned from the movements of the daily chart. 

At the time of writing, BTC’s Directional Movement Index (DMI) revealed that coin accumulation had been underway in the last two days. Still, ongoing at the time of writing, the buyers’ strength (green) at 24.74 was solidly above the sellers’ (red) at 16.22.

The position of BTC’s Chaikin Money Flow lent credence to the statement that buyers had control of the market, at press time. Positioned above the center line at 0.06, the coin’s buying momentum was high.

Moreover, in an uptrend, it meant that coin accumulation would continue as long as buyers were able to sustain the rally.
