Meanwhile, Bitcoin is trading at $5,152.72 amid a growing ranging trend. The price is above the simple moving average (SMAs). The 50 SMA will offer support at $5,100 while the 100 SMA currently at $5,081.88. Other support areas include the trendline, $5,050, $5,000 as well as $4,950.
Generally, Bitcoin is trending higher within the channel. However, the ranging indicator signals show that that path of least resistance is upwards sideways. We can, therefore, expect Bitcoin to stay above $5,100 in the short-term as per the MACD and the RSI on the 1-hour chart.chart
