Bitcoin is up by a strong 5% today as it finally surged past $60,000 for the first time in April. After breaking that level, it went on to reach today’s high at $61,222 (at the time of writing).
The coin started the month by attempting to charge above $60,000 but failed in the first week. Ultimately, it managed, but this comes after 4-5 failed attempts over the past month.
BTC was holding the 20-day EMA for the first few days of April but fell beneath there on Wednesday when Bitcoin fell by 4% to reach the weekly low near $55,400.
Then, the buyers regrouped at the support and have been pushing higher in the second half of the week.
As of now, closing the daily candle above $60k is critical for the bulls, as the next target lies at the ATH of $61.8k.
BTC Price Support and Resistance Levels to Watch
Key Support Levels: $60,000, $59,070, $58,355, $57,695, $56,720.
Key Resistance Levels: $61,170, $61,781, $62,400, $63,000, $63,765.
Looking ahead, the first resistance lies at $61,170 (ATH-day closing price and today’s high). This is followed by the ATH at $61,800, $62,400 (1.272 Fib Extension), $63,000, and $63,765 (1.414 Fib Extension).
On the other side, the first major support lies at $60,000. This is followed by $59,070 (.382 Fib), $58,355, $57,695 (.618 Fib), and $56,720 (.786 Fib). Additional support lies at $56,000 and $55,383 (weekly low).
The recent price hike allowed the RSI to break back above the midline, indicating bulls are now controlling the market momentum again. If it continues to push upward, the increased momentum should allow BTC to set a new ATH price very soon.
