Bitcoin in Recovery Mode, Resistance at $48K-$50K

Upside appears to be limited towards $50,000.

Sep 15, 2021 at 11:24 a.m. UTC
Updated Sep 15, 2021 at 1:49 p.m. UTC

Bitcoin (BTC) is recovering after a volatile sell-off last week and is up about 3% over the past 24 hours. The cryptocurrency faces resistance around the $48,000 to $50,000 price range, which could limit upside moves over the short-term.

Buyers continue to defend the 200-day moving average around $45,000 as downside momentum wanes.

- The relative strength index (RSI) on the four-hour chart is approaching overbought levels similar to last week, which preceded a sell-off.

- However, the RSI is rising from neutral levels on the daily chart, which could keep buyers active towards the $50,000 resistance level.
