BTC bulls are observing to remove an important overhead resistance level in instruction to make a path to $55K. BTC price shared over the $50K resistance level during the initial trading hours on March 3 as bulls found their impetus & the mainstream of altcoins joined in on the meeting as the day progressed.
Data from Trading View & Cointelegraph Markets displays that the price of BTC was trading at $48,500 in the primary hours on March 3 before rolling 8.6% to an intraday high of $52,631. Now, BTC price trades somewhat below $51K, & while $50K may have become a lenient support, a daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement ($52,000) is wanted to settle that a bullish setback has taken place.
On-chain examination from CryptoQuant specifies that BTC whales have been reliably buying the dips below $50K & according to CryptoQuant CEO Ki Young Ju, institutional procurement is taking place at the $48K support, as seen by the tinted orange line on the chart above.

Increasing harvests put pressure on traditional markets
Bitcoin’s outpouring above $50K & increasing addition into mainstream financial markets has encouraged some forecasters to speculate on when a novel all-time high will happen. For the time being, bearish macroeconomic factors are weighing on worldwide markets & this could reduce development in the short-term.
The S&P 500, Dow & NASDAQ confronted selling pressure thru the trading day & closed down 1.31%, 0.39% & 2.7% after a spike in the 10-year U.S. Treasury harvest renewed worries about the health of the U.S. & worldwide markets.
Rendering to, Head of Trading at CrossTower Chad Steinglass, Wednesday’s act in the market is a ‘revisit of the rates-based selloff’ from February 25, with tech equities & ARK funds facing augmented pressure.
Steinglass supposed that headwinds being confronted by BTC at the U.S. market open were the consequence of ‘being pulled down by GBTC as the GBTC discount has crept back up to about 4.5%.’ Notwithstanding these tests, Steinglass gets the recent promising BTC comments by Citigroup & Fidelity as strong support for the story of increasing institutional acceptance.
The detail that BTC lasts to show strength even with GBTC temporary like a resistance band holding it back is actual hopeful & shows to me that the general story, that of hurrying adoption, is quite intact.
Small & large-cap altcoins move advanced
Bitcoin’s pop above $50k also aided ignite a rally in altcoins as the mainstream of the highest 100 coins moved higher on Wednesday.
ETH increased 8% to set an intraday high at $1,610, though Cosmos (ATOM) rallied 15.7% to a daily high at $21.18.
