Bitcoin Dips Below $46K, Support Around $42K

Upside appears to be limited given signs of slowing momentum.

Updated Sep 13, 2021 at 2:51 p.m. UTC

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.
