Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Price Action

After the formation of a golden cross on the daily chart, Bitcoin prices have risen above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the June – September move at $47,000, in an effort to reclaim the key psychological level of $50,000 mark which remains as critical resistance for both the short and longer-term move.

With price action currently encapsulated between prominent levels, the ability to break above the key psychological level of $48,000 may give rise to further bullish momentum and a possible retest of $50,000 and a probable drive towards the next key Fibonacci resistance level of $51,734.
