Bitcoin comes full circle after erasing gains

Cointelegraph Markets Pro data and TradingView data showed mixed signals for BTC/USD at the end of the week.

Saturday saw a stronger rally by the pair. However, this was followed by ranging behavior in the absence of clear direction.

Michael van de Poppe, a Cointelegraph contributor, explained that “Happens quite frequently in the markets.”

Bitcoin saw a slight rally on Saturday, but it will be back to CME close Sunday. CME closed Friday at $47,490. It seems that we will also open there later today.

This could seal what was a cautiously optimistic week by hodlers. Last week’s close came in at $46,000.

An examination of the buy and sell levels on Binance revealed that there was strong resistance at $49,000. This has increased in veracity over weekend. However, buy support was still at $44,000.
