Bitcoin Price Prediction: BTC positioned for breakout above $50,000 – FXStreet

Bitcoin price action shows continued support against the daily Tenkan-Sen, but repeated resistance against the $48,000 value area. A bullish breakout becomes more likely as BTC inches closer to the $48,000 resistance.
Bitcoin price is currently holding just above the 2022 open of $46,242, keeping Bitcoin positive (barely) for the year. However, constricted price action throughout the weekend should be expected as Bitcoin will likely bounce between the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at $48,000 and the Tenkan-Sen at $46,000.
Bitcoin price is expected to continue its rally higher despite the drop on Thursday and failed attempts to dive lower on Friday. Historically, April is one of the best-performing months for Bitcoin. Years when the month of April did not yield a positive gain, losses didn't exceed the 3% level.
BTC/USD Daily Ichimoku Kinko Hyo Chart
The $48,000 price level remains the strongest area of resistance for Bitcoin to close above. $48,000 contains the top of the weekly Ichimoku Cloud and the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level. And above that is the weekly Kijun-Sen at $51,250.
Upside potential going into the weekend is likely limited to the $48,000 value area, while downside risks are more substantial. Because Bitcoin price remains inside the Ichimoku Cloud, its primary support level now exists at the bottom of the Cloud (Senkou Span B) at $37,800.

Bitcoin price has gone through turbulent times over the last few months. From reaching a new all-time high to hitting yearly lows and revisiting levels since 2020, the crypto markets have been extremely volatile.
Former BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes addressed the liquidity crunch that has hit the crypto market. Hayes believes Bitcoin and Ethereum prices could bleed further and identified altcoins that have bullish potential in the bear market. 
XRP price has found support above key psychological level $0.30 after some positive developments in the Ripple vs SEC court saga.
TRON price seems to be consolidating after rallying exponentially since March 2020. This massive coiling up at the top seems to have formed a bearish pattern that indicates a correction is due for TRX.
BTC is at a point in its journey through the bear market where investors are split into camps that are expecting a relief rally, a continuation of the crash and a full-blown bull rally. Interestingly, none of the aforementioned theses is wrong per se.
