After Bitcoin’s price surged past $50,000, the rebound later ran out of power. The price decline was predominantly driven by profit taking, which suggests that retail euphoria hasn’t entered the market as yet. $50,000 is an important psychological victory for Bitcoin, and people will no doubt start talking about when the price will hit another all-time high. 

However, one should remain cautiously optimistic about Bitcoin’s success in breaking through the $55,000 heavy resistance zone. Since BTC was not able to close above $51,000 yesterday, the next focus will be on whether it can hold the $48,000 support level. Otherwise, Bitcoin could face a long respite from its decline.
