Bitcoin Surges Above $2500 Following Goldman's Bullish Note

Bitcoin is up 40% from its weekend lows as the combination of a bullish Goldman Sachs note on the virtual currency and a major sigh of relief that the potential 'civil war' over cryptocurrency's scaling solutions appears to be over (with over 80% of the hashrate currently voting for the protocol upgrade).

# Goldman is also out wth a new bullish note on Bitcoin; Bitcoin has reached/so far held notable support at 1,857-1,789.

From this perspective, it’s either completed a full ABC or only the first A leg of a 3-3-3 type correction. Either way, this 1,856-1,790 area has potential to act as strong support. The first level to note above is gap resistance at 2,159...
