Discover happenings from all over the world in the cryptocurrency space last night and early this morning.
For the third successive week, Bitcoin remained green and trades around the $45K range. This price represents its highest close after declining below $47K around mid-May. Even though the Bitcoin price surged past 45K yesterday, it couldn’t sustain it and dropped slightly to now trade at a little below $44K.
The 200-day moving average shows that Bitcoin is struggling to overcome its resistance price range even though it has always closed over the range highs of May and June. But might make a move to overcome the next resistance level (which is at about $50K) once it makes some closes over the range depicted in the 200-day moving average. However, Bitcoin will likely create a higher low (around the $42K range) to show that it’s about to flip its current resistance to support before aiming for higher resistance ranges.
