The Bitcoin (BTC) price continued its uptrend today, reaching the high of $62,318. Buyers are trying to retake the previous high of $62,900. If the bulls break the recent high, the cryptocurrency will go up to $75,000.

In the previous price action, the bulls failed to sustain the bullish momentum above the $62,900 high. As a result, the BTC price fell back to the support at $59,000 as the bulls bought the dips.
