Overall, BTC has regained its bullish momentum over the past week. After losing 18 percent from the all-time high of $61,788 to the low of $50,983, BTC saw rejection for further downside on the 25th of March. After consolidating around $52,000 for a day, the bearish BTC price momentum was broken as the market returned above $54,000 previous major support.
From there, bullish BTC price momentum took over, and BTC/USD saw several higher highs and lows being set over the following days until the $60,000 major resistance was reached.
Yesterday, BTC spent most of the day consolidating around $59,000, with a retest of $58,000 support being made overnight. Earlier today, BTC made another attempt to push above the $60,000 mark, where bears quickly pushed the market lower. This price action likely means that we should see another small retracement over the upcoming hours. From there, BTC/USD should push higher once again and finally, break above the $60,000 mark.
Once the $60,000 resistance is broken, BTC/USD has no more resistance levels ahead until the previous all-time high of $61,788. Together with the psychologically important round number price level of $62,000, it should offer a good amount of resistance. However, once this final resistance level is broken, BTC should see rapid growth further, as we saw during the first half of March.
BTC Price Prediction: Conclusion
BTC price prediction is bullish since BTC/USD has retested the $58,000 support with clear rejection and has set a slightly higher high at the $60,000 resistance. Therefore, we should see BTC move higher over the next 24 hours as it attempts to break the previous all-time high at $61,800.
