Not much has been going on  with Bitcoin as it remains in a range in the daily chart. This kind of  price action would be best capitalized by traders who are more inclined  to ranging markets. A retest/break of the resistance around 8,500 - 8,700 and price hold above 50 MA in the daily chart is a good indication  that bulls still have strength left to push the price. Otherwise, a  breakdown is not far as BTC is still hovering near a significant support  around 8,000 - 7,700.  

Global market cap is at $224B, while BTC's market cap is at $149B.
