BTC/USD 4-hour chart – BTC finds support at $57,000
On the 4-hour chart, BTC/USD has posted a bullish rejection candle earlier this morning after the price briefly dipped below $57,000. If the support at $57,000 continues holding, we should see another attempt to move higher over the next 24 hours, as bulls are waiting for the break of the $60,000 mark.

Overall, BTC continues being bullish for the past week. After strong retracement in the middle of March, support was finally found at the $51,000 mark. From there, the BTC price action paused for a day as it prepared for a reversal. On the 26th of March, BTC/USD started rallying and quickly moved back above the $54,000 mark, which previously acted as strong support.
Over the following days, BTC set several higher local highs and lows, resulting in a move towards the $60,000 major resistance level. As soon as BTC/USD approached this level, a decrease in bullish momentum was seen as the market slowed down and eventually started consolidating around $59,000.
After several days of sideways movement, the BTC price broke lower yesterday, resulting in the $57,000 previous support/resistance level being retested. As of now, it holds the market from further downside, with a bullish rejection candle posted earlier today.
Therefore, we expect BTC to move higher over the next hours as it attempts to first move above the $58,000 resistance. Once BTC/USD breaks above it, we should see it quickly rally towards the $60,000, which, if broken, would be a very bullish signal for the upcoming month.
Once the $60,000 mark is broken, we will likely see BTC quickly jump to test the all-time high of $62,000, after which there are no more clear resistance levels ahead, and BTC could freely move much higher over the following days.
BTC Price Prediction: Conclusion
BTC price prediction is bullish as the market has rejected further downside around $57,000. Therefore, we expect the market to push higher later today and move back above minor resistance around $58,000. From there, we expect another attempt to move above the $60,000 next week.
