BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Since December 29, BTC price has been confined in a narrow range between $46,000 and $48,000. For the past four days, the bulls have been struggling to sustain the BTC price above the $48,000 price level. In other words, the bulls are finding it difficult to break above the 21-day line moving average. A break above the 21-day line moving average will accelerate the upward movement of the cryptocurrency. Bitcoin’s upward move is likely to face resistance at $50,000 and $52,000 price levels. Alternatively, a strong rebound above the current support will catapult Bitcoin to rally above the resistance levels. On the upside, if the bullish scenario is invalidated, Bitcoin will risk a further downward move.
