On the same day, it became known that a large Chinese photo processing company Meitu, which is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, had invested $40 million in Ethereum and Bitcoin.

All this news was positive for the market and this was reflected in the price of bitcoin and altcoins. Now let’s take a look at the Bitcoin chart in order to understand what to expect from it this week.

All of the technical indicators have gone badly and have already turned upward. It also adds optimism for future growth.
