BTC price has “crucial” support for the long-term

Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView data showed that BTC/USD was at $46,600 on Saturday, a clear rebound from long-term support.

Although the pair fell to $44,300 on Friday, it was short-lived because of positive sentiment that dominated the Wall Street open.

Cointelegraph contributor Michael van de Poppe was determined to keep his newly flipped support. The odds of an attack on $50,000 were in favor of him.

He stated that the “Crucial Area held Up for Bitcoin, In Which Continue upwards Seems Likely,” to his Twitter followers.

“If we go back to the $45k price range, it is a sign that we are weak and we will move into the $40k zone.” If we don’t, $50k might be possible next week.
