BTC was trading around $39,300 at press time and is roughly flat over the past week.
So far, buyers have maintained a strong support base around $37,000, which could limit pullbacks over the short term. The significant loss of downside momentum on the weekly chart could also encourage buying activity, especially if a breakout above $40,000 occurs.
On the monthly chart, however, momentum signals are negative, which means upside could be limited toward the $46,700 resistance level.
