Bitcoin (BTC) continues to fade after last week’s sell-off from the $52,000 resistance level. Buyers were unable to hold support at the 200-day moving average around $46,000, although the pullback could stabilize around the $42,000 breakout level achieved in early August.
The long-term uptrend is weakening as sellers attempt to establish a lower price high since April. Upside appears to be limited given signs of slowing momentum and resistance around $50,000-$55,000.
- The relative strength index (RSI) on the four-hour chart is rising from oversold levels over the past few days.
- Buyers could return near $42,000 support, although resistance around $48,000 could limit price rises.
- BTC is trading within a tight range, which means price is consolidating after a nearly 15% decline over the past week.
