Bitcoin (BTC) Tepidly Advances Above 4,100 as Upwards Momentum Slows
After rapidly surging to above $4,200 before plummeting back below $4,100 on Saturday, Bitcoin (BTC) has been able to incur some upwards momentum that has allowed it to tepidly move above $4,100.
It is important to note that Bitcoin’s strongest level of resistance exists at $4,200, but analysts are expressing cautious optimism regarding the current state of the cryptocurrency’s price.
Bitcoin Breaks Above $4,100 After Yesterday’s Volatility
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up marginally at its current price of $4,105. Over the past couple of weeks, $4,100 has proven to be a level of resistance for BTC, and it is unclear if the crypto’s bulls will garner enough buying pressure to flip this price into a level of support going forward.
Yesterday, Bitcoin experienced large volatility that entailed a sudden surge to $4,230 that was immediately proceeded by a drop to below $4,100. This price surge was strikingly similar to one seen in late-February, where BTC surged from $3,900 to $4,200 before spiraling downwards towards $3,700.
These two price moves have made it clear that $4,200 is a strong level of resistance, and that Bitcoin will require a significant influx of buying pressure to propel its price above this level.
Chonis Trading, a popular cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter, recently shared his thoughts on Bitcoin’s price action in a short video, noting that BTC faced resistance at its upper Bollinger Band, but still is technically in a bullish trend.

Bitcoin Struggles to Break Above Yearly Downwards Resistance Level
Over the past year, Bitcoin has been caught below a downwards resistance level which has continued to put bearish pressure on BTC’s price.
The Cryptomist, a popular cryptocurrency trader on Twitter, discussed this resistance level in a recent tweet, noting that she expects the crypto to face one more downwards break before it garners enough buying pressure to break above this resistance level.
“$BTC Weekly resistance right on the money! The daily candle is being rejected by the downtrend resistance that has held us in for a year… Double top on RSI suggest we may not break right now… My gut feeling – need 1 more leg down before break… When we do break, long green candle,” she explained.
