BITCOIN (BTC) TECHNICAL ANALYSIS
After rising above the $40,000 handle, a level that remains as critical support, a break above trendline prior trendline resistance turned support, Bitcoin prices continued to climb, driving prices to the 61.8 Fibonacci retracement level of the 2021 move at $44,106 Fibonacci retracement level.
As buyers and sellers battle it out, the 50-week MA (moving average (MA)will likely assist in providing an additional layer of resistance at $45,868 which then leaves the door open for the 50% retracement of the April – May 2021 move at $47,419.
However, on the daily-hour chart, the capitulation of price action and the apparent support and resistance levels mentioned above could further influence the short-term move.
