Bitcoin (BTC) tried again Thursday to break the resistance at $ 50,000. However, he did not make it again.
Bitcoin optimism is waning
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows that the BTC / USD pair has fallen to a low of $ 46,540 on Bitstamp. Just hours earlier, the pair climbed to over $ 49,300.
This continues the range and confirms the well-known resistance at $ 51,000.
Despite the brief pause at around $ 46,000, there weren’t many long positions in Bitcoin over the day. Popular trader Crypto Ed believes there could be another recovery rally before it goes any further down.

Others were more optimistic, including the on-chain analysis website CryptoQuant.
In one of the many updates over the course of the day, an analyst predicted that a Bitcoin decline below $ 47,000 would be a “fake decline” and would culminate in finally exceeding the $ 50,000 mark.
Buyer support for the BTC / USD pair was low on Thursday. On the big Binance exchange, you only see great interest again at around 41,000 US dollars.
Ether tests $ 3,000 again
