Bitcoin is up by a solid 6% today as the primary cryptocurrency surged by over $3000 over the past 24 hours.
Quick recap: bitcoin is recovering after a heavy correction over the past week, in which the cryptocurrency dropped by around 25% as it broke beneath the February ascending price channel (as shown on the daily chart below) and tumbled into the support around $43K – $44K.
It managed to rebound nicely from there, breaking above a falling wedge, as we mentioned on Monday. After touching $50K, yesterday Bitcoin corrected to $47K but managed to quickly recover (candle wicks on the short-term timeframes in favor of the bulls), and today, following the breakout of the critical daily EMA-20 line at around $48,200, Bitcoin was able to spike back above $50K.
As of now, Bitcoin is facing a huge horizontal resistance area between $51,400 and $51,800.

The daily RSI is now back above the midline as the buyers re-take control of the market momentum. If it continues to rise above 50, the bullish momentum will increase and push BTC back to the ATH levels again.
