Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Technical Analysis

After peaking at an all-time high of $61,760 earlier this month, prices temporarily retraced to critical support, before upward momentum prevailed. But after breaking above prior resistance of $54,527, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the March 2021 major move, prices surged once again, with the formation of an ascending channel suggestive that BTC/USD may be poised for a new high while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) on the weekly chart remains above 70, with Divergence indicating that the upward trend may be losing momentum.
