Bitcoin recovered from the sudden fall

Following the drawdown on March 15, Bitcoin’s price has been fluctuating between the $54,000 and $57,000 price levels. Buyers have been making frantic efforts to resume the upward move but the uptrend is hampered by the resistance at $57,000.

On March 15, the bulls retested the resistance twice and the BTC price suddenly dropped to the $54,000 support. The bulls bought the dips as Bitcoin recovered from the sudden fall. The market has risen and it is consolidating near the resistance at $57,000. 

Buyers have more advantage than sellers as consolidation near the resistance increases the chances of a possible break out. On the upside, Bitcoin will only resume an uptrend when the resistances at $57,000 and $58,000 are breached. The BTC/USD will have an opportunity to retest the $60,000 psychological price level. Nevertheless, if the bullish momentum is sustained above the next psychological price level, Bitcoin will reach the $75,000 high. However, this bullish scenario will be invalidated if the bulls failed to break the recent highs.
