Daily chart for BTC/USDT (Source: TradingView)
Looking at the daily chart for BTC/USDT, the price of BTC continues to trade below the 9-day and 20-day EMA lines after dropping below the two EMA lines on 3 March, 2023. After dropping below the 2 EMA lines, BTC’s price attempted a recovery to the 9-day EMA line but the move was stopped in its tracks.
This caused BTC’s price to drop below the key $21,600 level towards the next key support level at $19,800. Fortunately, the downward move formed a peak shortly after it broke the $19,800 level yesterday – reaching a low of $19,549.09.
BTC’s price was then able to close yesterday’s trading session back above the level at $20,150.69. A good amount of buy volume which entered the market today was able to push BTC’s price to a daily high of $20,686.51. Since reaching today’s high, BTC’s price has retraced to its current level.
