Bitcoin jumps as much as 6% to new six-month high

Other major cryptocurrencies such as ethereum and Ripple's XRP, their prices often seen as correlated to bitcoin, also moved higher.

Bitcoin jumped to a new six-month high on May 3 in a move that traders said was the result of technical forces, with no immediate news catalysts sending the cryptocurrency higher.

Bitcoin climbed more than 6 percent to briefly break $5,700, its highest since November 14.

It was last at $5,680 on the Bitstamp exchange, taking gains this year for the original and biggest virtual currency to nearly 55 percent.
