The bulls have failed to break the overriding resistance of $45,000

Bitcoin (BTC) price continues to trade above the moving averages. This is an indication of a possible move to the previous highs.

Today, the BTC price has retreated to a low of $43,678. Since February 8, the largest cryptocurrency has been trading in a narrow range between $41,800 and $45,000. 

The bulls have failed to break the overriding resistance of $45,000 three times. Last week, the cryptocurrency was forced to move sideways in a narrow range. Bitcoin will recover to the psychological price level of $50,000 if the bulls overcome the resistance of $45,000. Later, the bullish momentum will extend to the high of $52,000. However, if the bears manage to fall below the support at $41,800, the downtrend will resume. Bitcoin will fall to a low at $39,000. In the meantime, Bitcoin is fluctuating below the overriding resistance.
