Bitcoin Stabilizes After Pullback; Faces Resistance at $57K

The broader uptrend remains intact despite several months of consolidation.

Updated Sep 14, 2021 at 12:53 p.m. UTC

Bitcoin (BTC) is stabilizing after a near 7% drop on Monday as buyers continue to take profit. The cryptocurrency could see further upside towards resistance at $57,000.

The broader uptrend remains intact despite several months of consolidation. Sharp price moves are typical during consolidation phases, which can result in frequent drawdowns.

  • The relative strength index (RSI) on the hourly chart registered an oversold reading after Monday’s decline, which suggests a brief price recovery is underway.
  • Bitcoin held support around $54,000 along a series of higher price lows over the past few weeks.
  • Resistance is seen around the 100-period moving average on the hourly chart around $57,000 which could limit price gains.
  • Bitcoin has traded in a range between $53,000 and $59,000 as buyers struggle to retrace the April 14 sell-off.
