Bitcoin Fluctuates in a Range as It Defends Critical Support – August 29, 2021
BTC/USD price has continued to retest the $50,000 resistance zone as it defends critical support. Today, BTC’s price rallied to the high of $49,650 but was repelled. The crypto dropped sharply to the low of $48,107 and resumed consolidation above it. The current support is holding as the crypto resumes a range-bound move above the current support.
Resistance Levels: $50,000, $51,000, $52,000
Support Levels: $40,000, $39,000, $38,000
Today, the Bitcoin price has dropped sharply above the $48,000 support. The implication is that buyers have the advantage to push BTC price to retest the $50,000 overhead resistance. Today, if the bears break below the $48,000 support, it will signal the resumption of the downtrend. Incidentally, the crypto is likely to be range-bound between $48,000 and $49,500 price levels. Bitcoin will resume an uptrend above $50,000 high if buyers break $49,500 resistance and the bullish momentum is sustained. However, repeated rejections at the overhead resistance will cause Bitcoin to decline below $48,000 support. The Relative Strength Index period 14 is at level 58. It indicates that Bitcoin has room to rally on the upside.
