Bitcoin Reclaims Support; Approaching Resistance Near $56K-$58K

Bitcoin has retraced roughly 38% of the sell-off from May 3 as the short-term trend improves.

May 5, 2021 at 11:27 a.m. UTC
Updated Sep 14, 2021 at 12:50 p.m. UTC

Bitcoin (BTC) is holding support around $55,400 at the time of writing as buyers attempt to erase Tuesday’s losses. Resistance is seen around $56,000 and $58,000, where traders have taken profit over the past few months.

  • The relative strength index (RSI) on the hourly chart is not yet overbought, which suggests about 2%-3% upside to next resistance.
  • Bitcoin remains in a tight range as a pattern of lower highs on the RSI suggests slowing momentum and continued profit taking on rallies.
  • On the daily chart, support around the 100-day moving average preceded price recoveries on April 25 and on May 4 around $53,000. This suggests selling pressure has been limited as BTC consolidates.
  • For now, bitcoin has retraced roughly 38% of the sell-off from May 3 as the short-term trend improves.
