Bitcoin (BTC) is trading marginally above $47,000 support after the December 4 plunge. Today, BTC is easing back to find support above the $49,000 level.
Yesterday, the cryptocurrency was in an uptrend, reaching a high of $51,970 before being knocked back at the $52,000 resistance zone.
Last week, the bitcoin price fluctuated between $47,000 and $52,000. If buyers push the BTC price above the $52,000 high and the bullish momentum continues, bitcoin will rally and retest the $60,000 psychological price level. However, it will be difficult for the bears to drop below the $47,000 support as Bitcoin is under heavy buying pressure. The long candlestick suggests that support levels around the $42,000 low will provide strong buying pressure. Meanwhile, Bitcoin will continue to move within the trading range if buyers fail to break the recent high.
Bitcoin is at level 33 on the Relative Strength Index for period 14. The market is still in the downtrend, which will cause Bitcoin to decline. The price bars are below the 21-day moving average and the 50-day moving average lines, which increases the likelihood of a further decline. Currently, BTC is below the 50% area of the daily stochastic. The crypto is in a bearish momentum.
Major Resistance Levels - $65,000 and $70,000
