Bitcoin price faces another rejection at $51,000

Bitcoin has plunged to $46,601 low and pulled back immediately. This sharp drop was a result of buyers failing to push BTC price above the $58,000 resistance level. The $58,000 support has been the crucial price level for the resumption of upside momentum.

In previous price action, the bulls were able to breach the resistance level but fail to sustain the bullish momentum above the $60,000 psychological price level. 

Today, the downtrend is likely to continue as BTC price faces another rejection at $51,000. The market may decline to $45,000 low. On the upside, the bulls have an uphill task to push BTC price upward. Buyers will first reclaim the $50,000 psychological price level and push Bitcoin above $57,000 high. BTC price has fallen to the low of $48,793 at the time of writing.
