Bitcoin is capable of rallying to the $46,000 high

Bitcoin (BTC) rebounds above the $38,000 support as the crypto retests the $41,000 resistance zone. In the first attempt on June 14, BTC's price rallied to $40,980 high but couldn’t penetrate the resistance zone.

BTC's price was compelled to a sideways move and later fell above $38,000 support. Today, buyers have a second chance to retest and break the resistance zone. 

Bitcoin is capable of rallying to the $46,000 high, once the $41,000 resistance level is breached. The bullish momentum is likely to extend to $50,000 after the initial rally. However, if the bullish scenario fails, Bitcoin will be compelled to a range-bound move between $38,000 and $41,000. BTC/USD is trading at $39,250.40 at the time of writing. On the upside, if buyers push the BTC price above $47,000 high, the crypto will begin the resumption of upside momentum.
