- The relative strength index (RSI) on the hourly chart is the most oversold since March 25, which preceded a near 20% price rally.
- However, oversold price moves have been limited to resistance near the 200-period moving average, similar to March 22-24.
- The uptrend on the hourly chart has weakened, with initial support around $56,000 and lower support around $54,000.
- BTC will need to break above $60,000 to resume the uptrend. But for now, buyers who have been active at support are met with sellers at resistance – typical of a consolidation phase.
