Bitcoin Exchanging in a Tight Range
Also, the leading crypto, Bitcoin, is still trading in a tight range, though, buyers seem to be holding support above $60,000 price range. Short-term indicators are neutral, however, setbacks might be limited provided a series of value breakouts since the last month.
If the buyers fail to hold support at $60,000, lower support around 50-day moving average (MA), currently around $55,000 might stabilize a setback. Currently, upside momentum is cooling down, which indicates a period of consolidation can appear in the short term. Analysts suggest momentum can improve to support a breakout in Bitcoin above $65,000 as per the positive historical returns in the fourth quarter. As of press time, bitcoin is exchanging around $61,500.
