The price of Bitcoin (BTC) has broken above the psychological $50,000 price level. Buyers are making a second successful attempt in ten days.
The current bullish momentum has been holding for the last 48 hours as the bulls have broken above the $48,000 resistance. BTC/USD has a chance to reach a high of $51,200 if the bullish momentum is maintained.
Currently, RSI is at level 62 and bitcoin has room to rally higher. However, the lack of buyers at higher price levels will hinder Bitcoin’s upside momentum. In the recent previous price action, the bulls could not sustain the bullish momentum as the market reached the overbought zone. Moreover, there are not enough buyers at higher price levels. If buyers cannot sustain the bullish momentum today, the BTC price is likely to fall sharply.
