Amsterdam-based popular cryptocurrency analyst Michaël van de Poppe said that after being rejected at $51,600, Bitcoin must hold above the range of $49,300 to $49,700 if it wants to see upward momentum.
#Bitcoin following scenario here.
Rejected at $51.6K.
If it wants upwards momentum, it needs to hold above $49.3-49.7K, then we might see $53.5K, otherwise retest at $46K seems likely.
