BTC/USD Bears Remain in Control: Sally Ho’s Technical Analysis 12 January 2021 BTC

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) continued to endure weak technical sentiment early in today’s Asian session as the pair eyed a significant amount of upside technical resistance related to selling pressure that emerged around the 52100, 48574.70, and 47532.89 levels.   Traders lifted BTC/USD to the 43000 figure in the North American session after traders recently tested bids around the 39650 level, its weakest print since September and a test of key technical support that represents the 50% retracement of the appreciating range from 3858 to 61788.45.  Stops were elected above the 42661.26 level during the appreciation higher, representing the 38.2% retracement of the recent depreciating range from 47532.89 to 39650.  Following BTC/USD’s peak around the 52100 level in late December, a series of lower highs and lower lows has led to a significant reduction in risk tolerance.
