On the daily chart, Bitcoin (BTC) has been trading inside the ‘rising wedge’ formation. The price recorded an ascent of 39% from January’s lows. Earlier, BTC’s price dropped 31% as it sliced through the $42,500 support level, flipping them into the current resistance barriers.
Now, to continue with the current bullish undercurrent investors need to clear the blockade that is placed near the $45,500 and accumulate the buy-stop liquidity resting above it. An acceptance above the 200-SMA (Simple Moving Average) could further aim the upside towards the $52,000.
On the flip side, investors would lose their patience if the price slips below the 50-day SMA that also coincides with the breaking of the lower trend line of the pattern. The interim support is placed at $40,000.
RSI: The Daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) trades at 60, which is an indication market is still far from overheating.
MACD: The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) comfortable reads above the midline with a bullish undercurrent.
