Bitcoin price consolidates
On the daily chart, the Bitcoin price surged 21% from the lows of 37,560.40 made on March 14. The asset tested 3-month highs at $48,240.0 on Thursday. However, the bulls lack the conviction or are unwilling to carry forward the gains beyond the said level. In the recent pullback, BTC price revisited the critical 200-day EMA (Exponential Moving Average) at $44,796.98.
But the downside seem limited as the price bounced back with a 5% gain in two sessions. This, suggest the bulls are not in a mood to give up easily either. So, for now, BTC slides in a trading range of $45,000 and $48,000.
An acceptance above $48,000 amid sustained buying pressure would make traders hopeful. On moving higher, the first upside target could be located at the psychological $50,000. Next, market participants would likely recapture the horizontal resistance level at $52,500.
On the contrary, if the price fails to hold the session’s low then it would invalidate the bullish outlook for BTC price in the short-term. In that case, investors will collect the liquidity at the support level found at $42,500.
