Bears are likely to offer strong resistance

Bitcoin (BTC) has been impressive after breaking through resistance at $39,000. Moreover, Bitcoin bulls have continued the recent rallies after recapturing the psychological price level of $40,000.

However, on the daily chart, the bulls are on the verge of breaking the 50-day moving average. A break above the moving average will signal the resumption of upward momentum. 

At press time, the BTC price is trading at $42,736. Otherwise, the bears are likely to offer strong resistance in the $42,000-$43,000 area. The 50-day moving average line is also a resistance for the BTC price. BTC/USD is likely to rally above the $50,000 psychological price level once the current resistance zones are overcome. However, if the BTC price fails to reach its recent high, the cryptocurrency could fall back to the support at $39,000.
