Bitcoin (BTC) dipped below $65,000 as buyers continue to take some profits. The cryptocurrency was trading at around $64,000 at press time and is down 2% over the past 24 hours.
Lower support is seen at about $60,000, which could stabilize the current pullback.
The relative strength index (RSI) on the four-hour chart is near oversold levels, similar to Oct. 27, which preceded a nearly 10% increase in price. This time, however, buyers could face resistance at around $65,000, given the loss of upside momentum this week.
The weekly chart shows improving price momentum, although a decisive breakout above $69,000 needs to be confirmed before projecting upside targets.
