If buyers sustain the current bullish momentum, Bitcoin will face resistance at the $62,000 high

BTC price has again broken above the $60,000 overhead resistance. This will be the second breakout within the past 48 hours. However, buyers are yet to sustain the bullish momentum above the overhead resistance, and the BTC price has never closed above it.

Bitcoin bulls were able to reclaim and break above the overhead resistance because the coin rebounded above the $59,000 support. In the previous price action, Bitcoin slumps to the $58,500 support as bulls buy the dips. The $58,000 support has been a crucial support for upside momentum.

BTC/USD is trading at $60,825 at the time of writing. On the upside, if buyers sustain the current bullish momentum, the King coin will face resistance at the $62,000 high. Nevertheless, Bitcoin will rally to $66,000 high, if buyers breach the $62,000 resistance zone. Conversely, if Bitcoin turns from the resistance zone, the market will decline again. In previous price action, BTC price plunged to $50,350 low after rejection from $62,000 high.
