Bitcoin Broke Above The Multi-Week Resistance; What’s Next

Bitcoin recovered on its chart over the last 24 hours as the king coin surged by 2%. Prices of the coin saw some respite after visiting the $37,000 price level. As broader markets started to recover Bitcoin’s price action moved on a north-bound journey.

Currently, Bitcoin’s prices were trading in a tightly consolidated region because the coin did not manage to go past the $39,800 price mark. It is too early to say if the bulls have resurfaced completely in the market.

If demand doesn’t recover considerably, then the digital asset could fall back to the $38,000 price level,  which is acting as a support level for the coin. It is however a positive sign because Bitcoin has managed to break past its multi-week resistance line.

If the bulls continue to exert pressure then Bitcoin over the upcoming trading sessions could manage to revisit the $40,000 price mark. Bitcoin buyers have to continue staying in the market for the coin to successfully trade on the upside.
