Bitcoin (BTC) climbed back above $ 48,000 on September 15. The BTC / USD pair continues to attempt a retest of $ 50,000.
Bitcoin is marching towards $ 50,000
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView show that the largest cryptocurrency has broken the thin resistance above $ 47,000 and is now tackling psychologically important higher levels.
The bulls clinched a major victory with the $ 47,000 breakout. The resistance is now on the way to the $ 50,000 mark, analysts say.
“At the moment there could be a potential breakout above the high within the range,” said Cointelegraph employee Michaël van de Poppe in his latest YouTube update.
Van de Poppe said he was unsure if there would be an outbreak. But if that happens, retesting the $ 50,000 mark would be “pretty significant”.
“This is the final hurdle before an actual new all-time high, I think,” he added.
Looking at the buy and sell positions on the major Binance exchange, the growing resistance behind the corridor between $ 40,000 and $ 50,000 is confirmed.

The two have had the best performance among the top 10 cryptocurrencies. They even stole the show from the previously very strong polkadot (DOT). This recorded a minus of 4 percent over the course of the day.
The largest altcoin, Ether (ETH), was able to climb 3 percent towards $ 3,500.
