Bitcoin (BTC) buyers are exiting positions as overbought signals appear on the charts. Resistance is seen at around $58,000-$60,000, the level that preceded a price drop in May. This time, however, pullbacks could be limited toward the $50,00-$52,000 support zone.

BTC was trading at around $55,600 at press time and is down 3% over the past 24 hours.

  • The relative strength index (RSI) on the four-hour chart is declining from overbought levels last week, which suggests the current pullback could extend into Asian trading hours.
  • The RSI is also overbought on the daily chart similar to early September before a price correction occurred.
  • For now, immediate support is seen at the 50-period moving average on the four-hour chart, which is at $54,000. Short-term volatility could remain elevated as indicators show a stalemate between buyers and sellers.
