Data from Coinbase exchange showed that shortly after 3:00 a.m. UTC BTC/USD moved to $10,000 on a high volume spike but the digital asset quickly pulled back to $9,975. The feat of reclaiming five figures occurred after a nearly four-month absence.

During that time, the pair traded as low as $6,400 before an abrupt bullish turnaround saw January alone deliver gains of 35%.

The move to the symbolic $10,000 level was preceded by Bitcoin futures markets, which briefly entered the zone on Feb. 6.

Traders had been primed to expect a strong directional move, with Cointelegraph Markets analyst filbfilb identifying $9,550 as likely support.

Fellow analyst Mati Greenspan added:

“This isn't the first time bitcoin has been valued above $10,000 and it might not be the last, but it is the first time that the valuation is justifiable based on fundamentals of the network.”
