BTC is up by 3% over the past 24 hours, and momentum has improved over the past week. That means buyers could remain active above the $27,500 support level.
The sharp down move on May 12 toward $25,300 occurred on high volume, which could be a sign of capitulation, albeit less significant than in the previous sell-off.
Still, despite room for a price bounce, upside appears to be limited because of negative momentum readings on the weekly and monthly charts.
