Bitcoin Consolidates Above $62,000 Support amidst Bullish Expectation
The price of Bitcoin (BTC) has declined over the past three days as the cryptocurrency hit a low of $62,406. The current decline is due to the fact that buyers were unable to recapture the $64,000 price level.
If buyers have managed to overcome this resistance level, the BTC price will rise and retest the next resistance at $67,000. If these levels are broken, a rally above the high at $70,000 is expected.
Nonetheless, the BTC price is holding above support at $62,200 after the recent decline. In other words, bitcoin is above the 21-day moving average. The market will rise again if these levels hold. Conversely, Bitcoin will fall to the low of $58,700 if sellers break this current support. In the meantime, Bitcoin is trading marginally above the $62,000 support.
