A break above $60,000 will drive BTC to the previous high

Today, Bitcoin (BTC) is falling after being pushed off at the $60,000 resistance level. The cryptocurrency's price has fallen to a low of $57,318 at the time of writing.

If sellers push the price past the previous low of $55,700, the market will continue to fall to the lows of $54,000 and $51,500. Conversely, if the BTC price falls and rallies above the previous low, it will rise and retest resistance at $60,000. A break above the high at $60,000 will drive the BTC price to the previous high at $67,000. On November 21, buyers failed to sustain the bullish momentum above $60,000 as they were pushed back. BTC/USD is likely to remain in a range between $55,700 and $60,000 for a few more days.
