Bitcoin’s current rally has yet to break out of its previous downtrend. It is suggesting a bigger correction is likely ahead. In the past few weeks, Bitcoin has been in a long short run since it fell below $50,000. These two days Bitcoin short-term rebound strength is insufficient, still did not walk out of the downward channel. Bitcoin’s price rally is under pressure. Even so, Bitcoin bounced as high as near $47,400 yesterday, but has yet to make a meaningful breakthrough. For now, the downtrend is still dominant and investors should watch $44,600 as the first support level for BTC.
