The fresh rally comes after the cryptocurrency tumbled on Thursday, falling as low as $16,200. However, bitcoin added 15 percent over the past four days, reaching almost $18,700 earlier on Monday. Its 24-hour trading volume stood at $24.8 billion.

Analysts say that the latest movements signal bitcoin has finished correcting. Prior to last week’s slump, bitcoin saw a monster rally that pushed its price to an almost three-year high. It fell short of reaching an all-time peak and started to sink shortly after breaking past the $19,000 threshold for the first time since December 2017.

Most of the other top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap, which usually follow bitcoin’s trend, were also up on Monday. Ripple’s XRP and Tether were the only ones trading lower, losing 1.7 percent and around half a percent, respectively.
