BTC has been hovering between $46,000 and $48,000

Bitcoin (BTC) price is in a downward correction and above the crucial support line. Bitcoin's upward movement has been capped below the psychological $50,000 price level.

Since September 29, BTC has been hovering between $46,000 and $48,000. Today, the BTC price seems to be falling marginally into the lower price range. 

The bottom line is that Bitcoin will see a rally or collapse if it continues to trade in a tight range. Thus, a sharp rise above the current support will push the BTC price to break through the initial resistance and rise above the overarching $52,000 resistance. The bullish momentum will extend to the high at $54,000. Conversely, a break below support at $46,000 will cause the bitcoin price to fall drastically to the low of $41,634. Meanwhile, the cryptocurrency is trading at $46,979 as of press time.
