What is the Next for Bitcoin?

if Bitcoin rejects the higher resistance level, lower levels may be tested in a sequence of lower highs and lower lows until prices touch the next critical support level. Therefore the market may experience a lot of short-term based trades and a lot of volatility too as the technical indicator RSI (14) moves below 60-level.

However, it is important to note that BTC/USD is most likely to break south if the 9-day MA crosses below the 21-day MA, and its failure to hold the mid-range support level may pull the price down to its next support level at $52,000. Meanwhile, the short-term analysis indicates that BTC/USD may test higher levels with key resistance at $61,500 before a reversal and the resistance levels to watch are $62,000, $64,000, and $66,000 while the supports are located at $48,000, $46,000, and $44,000 respectively.
