However, the price faces a key hurdle near the $39,250 zone. The main barrier is still near the $40,000 level. A clear move above the $40,000 zone could open the doors for a fresh increase. If not, the bitcoin price might resume decline to $37,000.

A successful close above $2,600 might set the pace for more gains. The next key hurdle is $2,670, above which the bulls might take control. If there is no upside break, the price could start a fresh decline towards the $2,500 and $2,450 levels.
RUNE formed a strong support base above the $3.30 level. As a result, it started a steady increase above the $4.00 and $4.50 resistance levels to move into a positive zone.

The price settled above the $6.50 level and the 21-day simple moving average. The price even surged above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $9.55 swing high to $3.10 low.
RUNE is now up over 20% and trading above $7.20. If the bulls remain in action, they could push the price above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $9.55 swing high to $3.10 low.
The next major stop could be $10.00. If there is a downside correction, the bulls might remain active near the $6.50 and $6.20 levels.
