What’s the connection between The Simpson Family’s iconic square-headed son and cryptocurrency? Well, there is one, as the market discovered on Valentine’s Day this week.

A bullish divergence often signals a market trend reversal and is widely considered to be a sign of seller exhaustion. At the time of writing Bitcoin is listed at USD 3.636.70 on CoinmarketCap.
