Bitcoin aims at $50,000

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView tracked the largest cryptocurrency as it overcame weak resistance above $47,000 to reach psychologically significant higher levels.

$47,000 was a big gain for the bulls, with resistance then turning towards the $50,000 level, the area that should come next, analysts say.

“For now, we’re looking at a potential breakout above the high range,” Cointelegraph contributor Michael van de Poppe said in his latest YouTube update earlier today.

Van de Poppe revealed that he is not sure such a breakout will occur at this point, but if it does, a retest of the $50,000 would be “very significant”.

“This is the last hurdle before we hit a new all-time physical high, in my opinion,” he added about flipping and then retesting $50,000 as support.

A look at the latest buying and selling positions on the major Binance exchange confirmed the wall of resistance growing beyond the $40,000-50,000 corridor.
