The following is what traders and analysts think about Bitcoin’s next step, as its trading price is close to the important psychological price of $50,000.

Bitcoin finally broke through resistance

Bitcoin’s latest trend successfully broke through the bottom trend line of the ascending channel. According to Rekt Capital, an anonymous crypto analyst on Twitter, BTC needs to test $51,000 before the market can better understand whether $50,000 will serve as support.

Long positions need to close above $51,000

Cointelegraph writer Michaël van de Poppe also stated that Bitcoin needs to close at more than $51,000 to see the continuation.

As highlighted by the chart provided above, the $51,000 level is an important price level during the BTC rise in early 2021, so it is necessary to see a breakthrough of this level to confirm the trend change.

Failure to break through this level may lead to further BTC consolidation, which bodes well for altcoins that usually make significant gains when Bitcoin prices are trading sideways.
