BTC price recovers after plunging to $50,500 psychological price level. For the past 48 hours, Bitcoin has been rising as buyers attempt to breach the resistance at $57,000. The current uptrend is likely to face further resistance on the upside.
For instance, on April 7, BTC price rebounded above the $56,000 support as price rallied to breach the $58,000 resistance. Bitcoin will resume upside momentum if buyers reclaim the $58,000 support. BTC/USD will have price acceleration above the $58,000 support.

BTC price has fallen to level 43 of the Relative Strength Index period 14. It indicates that BTC price is in the bearish trend zone and capable of falling.
Major Resistance Levels – $65,000 and $70,000
