BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging (Daily Chart)
Resistance Levels: $55,000, $57,000, $59,000
Support Levels: $47,000, $45,000, $43,000
BTC/USD is ranging as the market establishes a higher low around $50,920 but currently rebounding to retest previous resistance at $51,000. The bulls may continue to find some resistance levels around the upper boundary of the channel on the road to recovery and the path of least resistance appears to the upside in the near term amid a favorable bullish technical setup.
Bitcoin Price Prediction: BTC Price Could Spike Higher
In the past few hours, after the Bitcoin price touches the daily low of $46,537, the king coin has been facing the resistance level of $50,000 and looking forward to reclaiming the resistance level of $51,000. However, the daily chart reveals that if the 9-day moving average crosses above the 21-day moving average, this will confirm the next direction that the coin will follow. In other words, BTC/USD may decline if the $50,000 support breaks down but the price could rise if the $51,000 resistance is reached.
Meanwhile, the technical indicator Relative Strength Index (14) is likely to cross above 50-level, indicating a bullish movement. Therefore, if the Bitcoin price crosses above the channel, it could hit the resistance levels of $55,000, $57,000, and $59,000 but any movement below the 9-day and 21-day MAs could hit the supports at $47,000, $45,000, and $43,000.
BTC/USD Medium-Term Trend: Ranging (4H Chart)
According to the 4-hour chart, the Bitcoin price is seen rebounding as the technical indicator Relative Strength Index moves to cross into the overbought region. On the upside, if the Bitcoin price stays above the 9-day and 21-day moving averages in the short term, bullish influence could spike and the accrued gains massively.
However, the current candle could fail to cross above the upper boundary of the channel and the critical support level remains at $49,000 and below but the best the bulls can do is to hold above the resistance level of $51,000 and keep their attention on breaking the potential resistance at $53,000 and above.
