“Price is now breaking back above the 1yr MA. Historically this is an important level for Bitcoin signaling the start of a bullish trend.”

Phoenix said,

“Those that missed the boat may hope for a perfect entry with a mid $45,000 retest. But, BTC often doesn't give perfect entries. Clearly bullish after this clean break above the range in my opinion.”

Rekt Capital said,

“Technically, if BTC flips the black ~$47,000 Monthly level into support this March… There's little major Monthly resistance until ~$57000 (red).”
