Bitcoin Holds Short-Term Support, Faces Resistance at $40K

BTC held minor support along a series of lower price highs. Upside appears limited going into the weekend.

Bitcoin (BTC) is stuck in a consolidation phase after a volatile May. A nearly 13% rise on Wednesday was short-lived as buyers took profits. There is strong resistance near $40,000 despite oversold readings on the daily chart.

Bitcoin registered a series of lower price highs over the past two weeks, although buyers have defended support at around $34,000 and $30,000.

The cryptocurrency was trading at about $37,500 at press time.

  • The relative strength index (RSI) on the daily chart is improving from an initial oversold reading on May 19, which suggests the downtrend from May is stabilizing.
  • However, there is strong overhead resistance, which could limit price rallies beyond $40,000.
  • The weekly chart is not yet oversold, although there are initial signs of downside exhaustion. That means buyers and sellers are at a stalemate until a decisive break above $40,000 or below $30,000 is confirmed.
  • The longer-term trend is weakening following extreme overbought signals in March. For now, upside remains limited into the weekend given the intermediate-term downtrend.
