Bitcoin bulls make a run on $45K after Twitter debuts crypto tipping

On Sept. 23, bullish optimism was on the rise in the cryptocurrency market as prices continue to recover after this weeks volatility. This weeks volatility was caused by regulatory pressure on crypto sector, FOMC meeting on Feds interest rates hikes and monetary policies, and fears that the Evergrande situation could ripple out to affect global financial markets.

TradingView and Cointelegraph Markets Pro data show that BTC prices spiked to above $44,800 on Thursday. Now, they are aiming at flipping the $45,000 support level.
