Bitcoin’s (BTC) price has managed to register a new two-month high of $43,901 after breaking past the key resistance of $40,000. The top cryptocurrency has managed to convert its long-time resistance into key on-chain support and now looks set to conquer $45K next. The top cryptocurrency is currently trading $43,716 up by 7.13% and looks well-positioned to test $50K resistance soon.
The next key resistance for BTC lies at $45K and if it continues its bullish momentum, the key resistance would turn into support, and $50K would be imminent. The top cryptocurrency has broken out of nearly three-month-long price slumber dominated by bearish sentiment. It registered 10 consecutive daily green candles for the first time in 4 years.
Bitcoin is currently breaking out of a two-month-long range for the second time this month and a clear break would certainly make the path to $50K easier.
