As Cointelegraph reported, the area of ​​seller pressure above $ 47,000 was an impressive feature on the daily chart all week, with Bitcoin taking several days to prepare for its attack.

In this case, the wall was only partially broken before momentum subsided and BTC / USD returned to more familiar territory.

At the time of writing, the BTC price action was centered around $ 46,500, a classic “Bart Simpson” structure that characterizes the moves for the past 24 hours.

“Nothing special about this move, it’s just typical for a weekend,” said Cointelegraph employee Michaël van de Poppe.

“However, the zone of strong resistance between $ 47,000 and $ 49,000 has been reached, and no breakthrough has occurred for Bitcoin. Be careful. “

Appropriate volume would be required to sustain another run-up and flip new resistance levels in support – a breakout without this volume could ultimately fail and cost overly optimistic traders

The trading colleague and analyst Rekt Capital, meanwhile, has been keeping an eye on the imminent daily close to confirm the support zone of USD 46,000 reached a few days ago.

Sentiment remained good on Saturday, however, as several signals indicated the potential for another uptrend.
