Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction – April 2, 2021
On March 30, BTC/USD reclaimed the $58,000 support after much struggle. Buyers were able to hold the support for two days as the BTC price rebounded to break the $60,000 psychological price level. The bottom line is that can the bulls sustain the current bullish momentum above the $60,000 high?
Resistance Levels: $58,000, $59,000, $60,000
Support Levels: $40,000, $39,000, $38,000
Following the breaking of the $60,000 resistance and the subsequent pullback, Bitcoin has found support above the $58,000 high. For the past three days, the support has been holding. Bitcoin will resume upside momentum if bulls defend the current support level. Today, buyers have broken above the $60,000 support but are yet to sustain the bullish momentum above it. However, Bitcoin is likely to face resistance at the $61,693 high. Bitcoin will rally above $70,000 high if the $62000 resistance is cleared. However, BTC price is approaching the 80% range of the daily stochastic. That is, BTC price is now in the overbought region of the market. Therefore, Bitcoin expected rally is doubtful.
