A daily close above the mentioned level would pave the way for the psychological $26,000 level, This also coincides with the upper trendline of the wedge formation.

The MACD oscillator shows that the bullish momentum is sustaining above the midline. The RSI (14) is currently trading near the 59 level, which indicates that the market is in bullish mode and is far from overheating. Any uptick in the indicators would strengthen a bullish breakout out of the current consolidation.
