Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction – May 11, 2021
Since April 14, Bitcoin bulls have failed to sustain above the $60,000 overhead resistance. BTC/USD has been in a downward correction between $48,000 and $60,000. If buyers have broken the $60,000 psychological price level, Bitcoin would have resumed the second leg of an uptrend that would have seen BTC price reached the high of $70,000.
Resistance Levels: $65,000, $70,000, $75,000
Support Levels: $50,000, $45,000, $40,000
Today, Bitcoin is in a downward move since May 10 after its rejection from the high of $59,589. The king coin has fallen to the low of $55,102 at the time of writing. The crypto has lost the $58,000 crucial support level. This support level is where the market tends to resume upside momentum. In the previous price action on May 8, buyers reclaimed the $58,000 support level. The bulls retested the $60,000 support resistance zone but could not sustain the bullish momentum above it. Today, if the bears succeed in breaking below the moving averages, the downtrend is likely to continue. Perhaps, Bitcoin will fall to the low of either $53,000 or $50,000. Buyers will attempt to defend these support levels as it will eventually sustain the range-bound move between the $50,000 and $60,000 price level.
