Bitcoin (BTC) was marginally higher on Saturday, as the token once again attempted to climb above the $25,000 level.

Following a low of $23,657.27 on Friday, BTC/USD hit an intraday high of $24,860.05 to start the weekend.

The move saw bitcoin briefly break out of its resistance level of $24,600, and near a two-month high above $24,900 in the process.

Looking at the chart, today’s gains come as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) finally broke out of its long-term resistance point at the 60.32 level.

As of writing, the index is currently tracking at 61.60, which is slightly below another point of uncertainty, at 61.80.
