Bitcoin Momentum Strengthens Despite Short-Term Pause

First Mover Asia: A Year After Coinbase's IPO, Most Listed Crypto Firms Are Under Water Compared With Bitcoin's Performance; BTC Retreats From $42K

Don't miss CoinDesk's Consensus 2022, the must-attend crypto & blockchain festival experience of the year in Austin, TX this June 9-12.

Bitcoin (BTC) generated a positive momentum signal on the daily price chart, similar to what occurred in late March. That suggests buyers could remain active toward the $46,700 resistance level.

The cryptocurrency was trading around $41,900 at press time and is up 4% over the past week.

The relative strength index (RSI) on the four-hour chart is declining from overbought levels, which typically occurs during a brief pullback in price. Still, support at $40,000 could maintain BTC's recovery phase.

Initial resistance is seen at $42,400, where sellers were active earlier in the New York trading day. On the daily chart, however, the RSI is rising from oversold levels with stronger momentum, indicating a rise in bullish sentiment.
