Bitcoin (BTC) is down about 5% over the past 24 hours after sellers became more active than buyers around the $65,000 resistance level.

The cryptocurrency is stabilizing around $60,000 support and appears to be oversold on intraday charts.

For now, short-term indicators suggest limited downside into Asian trading hours. For example, the relative strength index (RSI) on the four-hour chart is the most oversold since Oct. 27, which preceded a near 10% price bounce.

Still, the RSI on the daily chart is neutral as upside momentum continues to wane. This suggests intraday buyers will be quick to take profits around the $63,000-$65,000 resistance zone.

A period of consolidation could persist over the next few days before BTC establishes a stronger footing around the $60,000 support zone.
