Moreover, the price spiked below $10,500, but downsides were contained.
A swing low was formed near $10,463 and the price started a fresh increase. It broke the $10,600 resistance to move back into a positive zone.

The bulls even pushed the price above a connecting bearish trend line with resistance at $10,560 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
