Bitcoin price attempts to trade higher
On the daily chart, the Bitcoin price trades cautiously higher. However, the recent price remains pressured below the 200-EMA. The strong volumes with rising in price signaled the strength of the bullish momentum.
An acceptance above the mentioned moving average will seek the immediate target at the upper trend line of the channel at $48,000.
In addition to that, the sustained buying pressure will take out the psychological $52,000 next.
On the contrary, if the price fails to sustain the session’s low then it will resist the upside momentum. On moving down, the first downside target could be found at the 50-day EMA at $41,200.
Bitcoin price depreciated nearly 50% from the record highs made in November at $69,000. The price tested lows of $32,933.33 in January. Since then price is rising inside the ‘ascending’ channel. The price faces rejection near the 200-EMA, thus it is crucial for bulls to move beyond the mentioned upside hurdles.
