The benchmark crypto peaked at $49,811 on the Bitstamp exchange earlier today, stopping short of reclaiming the psychological price point. However, bulls stepped in to push the Bitcoin price higher following several rejections.  

After recovered from the El Salvador sell-off, Bitcoin plunged due to problems in China’s property market affecting the global economy in late September. Within the same week, the largest cryptocurrency was also hit hard after the Chinese government introduced its harshest measures against the cryptocurrency industry yet.

On Sept. 28, the sentiment indicator dipped into the “extreme fear” territory when Bitcoin was teetering on the verge of plunging below the $40,000 support. This, as some expected, market the bottom of the correction.

The largest cryptocurrency is now up 21 percent over the last week, with “Uptober” so far living up to its name.
