Bitcoin attempts to test $48,000
On the daily chart, Bitcoin (BTC) price after rallying nearly 40% from January’s lows finds some strong foothold near the 50-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $42,418. The descending trend line from the highs of December $52,100 acts as a strong resistance barrier for the bulls.
