Bitcoin saw a strong rebound today as it recovered from yesterday’s low at $43,000 to over $48K, where it is trading as of writing these lines.
The cryptocurrency had been in a downtrend for the previous week as it dropped by over 25% to reach its weekly low yesterday, at the mentioned-above level of $43K (according to Bitstamp).
During the plummet, Bitcoin had broken beneath an ascending price channel that it was trading within throughout February, however, over the past days BTC was forming a falling wedge which is a textbook bullish formation. The wedge can be seen on the following 4-hour chart.
Alongside the pennant, there were hints of bullish divergence on the short-term timeframes, including the 4-hour, that we highlighted yesterday. After closing the daily candles for the previous two days at $44,750, the bullish divergence played out nicely today – allowing Bitcoin to break the wedge’s upper boundary, penetrate beyond the 4-Hour 20-EMA, and sharply climb above the $48,000 mark.
Now, the question is, whether Bitcoin will have enough power to penetrate the $50K psychological resistance level, and maybe, aim at the current all-time high level of $58K, set just days ago on February 21, 2021.
