In the previous session. BTC/USD tested the low of $34,322.0 but recovered back quickly to the highs of $39,720. But price remained in a very tight range with no meaningful price action.
Now, if the buying pressure remained consistent BTC could test the upside filter at the 50-day moving average at $45,900.
Next market participant will keep their eyes on the crucial 200-EMA at $48,200. Thus looking for a total upside of 25% from the current levels.
