Bitcoin (BTC) appears to be oversold, which could support a brief rise toward the $60,000-$63,000 resistance zone.

The cryptocurrency has held short-term support at about $56,000 as selling pressure has stabilized.

The relative strength index (RSI) is rising from oversold levels, similar to what happened on Oct. 27, which preceded a price recovery. On the daily chart, the RSI is approaching oversold levels for the first time since late-September.

Further, bitcoin’s correction from an all-time high of nearly $69,000 appears to be exhausted, which could encourage buyers to return. Momentum is improving into the Asian trading day, although resistance at around $63,000 could limit further upside over the short term.
