Bitcoin Price eyes $48k
Bitcoin price has boosted immensely during the week of Aug 2-8, as it reached a high of $45,310. Currently, it is moving toward an intense confluence of resistance levels which is between $46,950 and $47,750. In addition, short-term time frames are currently showing shortcomings and weaknesses. Bitcoin (BTC) has developed three successive bullish candlesticks in the weekly time frame and is currently in the process of building a fourth.
Its upward move started after the price bounced at the $29,000 horizontal support area on July 21. And now, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading under the 0.5 Fib retracement resistance level at $46,950. Technical indicators are revealing some bullish signs, but not enough to ascertain a bullish reversal. While the MACD has given a bullish reversal signal and the RSI has just crossed above 50, the Stochastic oscillator is still bearish.
Bitcoin Moves Towards Resistance
Following the daily chart, it shows that Bitcoin (BTC) is gradually approaching a strong resistance level between $46,950 and $47,750. This resistance is created by the short-term 0.618 Fib retracement résistance level (black), the previously outlined long-term 0.5 Fib retracement level (white), and a horizontal resistance area. While technical pointers are still bullish, there is a potential bearish divergence developing in the RSI.

Bitcoin Future Movement
Furthermore, there are more signs of weakness in even shorter time frames such as the six-hour chart. Both the RSI and MACD have created bearish divergences. In addition to this, it seems that BTC is pursuing an ascending resistance line, which has just rejected the price. If a downward move happens, the nearest support levels would be found at $39,900 and $37,750.

In addition to this, the two-hour chart provides a very similar reading. Both the MACD and RSI have generated considerable bearish divergences. These readings bolster the possibility that a short-term lowered move could soon happen at any time.
