Bitcoin climbed by 4% in the past 24 hours after gaining over $2,000 from today’s low of $44,000 (Bitstamp). The primary cryptocurrency is up by a total of 23% this past week after it broke the previous ATH price from January 8th, 2021, of $42,000. This comes following the news that Tesla had purchased $1.5 billion worth of BTC.
After breaking $42,000 on Monday, Bitcoin continued higher to reach the critical resistance at $46,430 (1.618 Fib Extension). It spiked above it on Tuesday, setting a new ATH price at $48,216 according to Bitstamp, but could not close a daily candle above the aforementioned level, and it’s currently trading around it.
Yesterday, Bitcoin dropped into the support at $44,415 (.236 Fib Retracement), wicking to a daily low of $43,700 on Bitstamp, which is also an ascending trend-line that started forming in mid-December 2020. This concludes a 2-day drop where BTC lost around $4000 of its face value. As mentioned, the cryptocurrency rebounded quickly, and, as of now, it’s facing critical resistance.
