Bitcoin (Bitcoin) It touched $47,000 on Tuesday as range behavior continues to suggest an attack on major resistance.
Bitcoin’s volatility narrows
The area between 45,000 USD and 48,000 USD has become a narrow trading channel for Bitcoin as it attempts to break its last barrier before 50,000 USD. However, so far, the bulls lack the motivation to influence major changes.
For Cointelegraph writer Michaël van de Poppe, $48,000 was a level to watch for the day, as a breakthrough from there could cause another upward impulse move.
“If we clearly break through there, it might trigger a big short squeeze because everyone is looking for shorts in this area,” he said in a new YouTube updates.
“This reminds me of Bitcoin’s $6,000 area. If Bitcoin is to break through this level, I think we will squeeze all the way to $55,000 to $56,000, which is our next level now.”
Trader and analyst Rekt Capital agrees that despite the lack of impulsive moves so far, Bitcoin’s upward trend still has enough momentum.
