Bitcoin Rallies to $44k High as Bitcoin Faces Rejection
Today, BTC/USD has continued to move upward to retest the $44,000 resistance zone as Bitcoin faces rejection. In the first uptrend, the crypto was repelled at $43,860 high as it fell to $42,700 low. In the second uptrend, buyers pushed BTC prices to the high of $44,122 as the crypto faced another rejection. This has been the price action for the past week.
Resistance Levels: $50,000, $51,000, $52,000
Support Levels: $40,000, $39,000, $38,000
Bitcoin bulls have made concerted efforts to breach the $45,000 resistance zone. Buyers could not sustain the bullish momentum above the $44,000 high. In previous price action, on September 27, the bulls were repelled at the same price level. The crypto plunged to the lower price range at $40,000. One reason why buyers are failing to sustain the bullish momentum is that Bitcoin is trading in the overbought region. However, in a strong trending market, the overbought condition may not hold. The bulls are capable of breaching the resistance levels of $45,000 and $48,800. However, the BTC price will be range-bound if the range-bound levels remain unbroken.
