Bitcoin price is fluctuating between $45,000 and $48,000

BTC/USD has finally broken and crossed the psychological price level of $40,000. On February 8, the bulls broke the $40,500 resistance and rallied to a $48,000 high.

The rally reached the $48,000 high but was repelled. The price retraced to $45,000 support but resumed to retest the recent high. Today, the BTC price is fluctuating between $45,000 and $48,000. The market has risen to $46,839 at the time of writing. 

However, a further upward move is doubtful with the appearance of a Doji candlestick. The candlestick is describing that the uptrend is losing strength. Buyers are unable to continue with the uptrend as sellers emerge to push prices to the $45,000 support. In the previous price action, the bulls could not sustain the bullish momentum above $40,000 resistance. Consequently, the cryptocurrency fell and has been in a downward correction since January 8.
