Is Bitcoin price going to crash again?

Bitcoin’s (BTC) price has rebounded by more than 12.50% just three days after hitting a two-month low of approximately $56,550, reaching over $64,000 on May 4.

This resurgence has been chiefly fueled by the U.S. Federal Reserve’s commitment to maintaining interest rates unchanged throughout 2024. Additionally, positive U.S. employment data, revealing a decline in jobless claims to their lowest since mid-February, has further bolstered Bitcoin’s ongoing price recovery.

Is there potential for Bitcoin to continue its upward trend, or are we anticipating another downturn?

Retest of $60K support likely

Bitcoin’s potential to undergo a modest correction in May is high when it comes to price chart technicals.

As of May 4, BTC was eyeing a decisive close above its 50-day exponential moving average (50-day EMA; the red wave in the chart below) at around $63,966. Doing so could send the price toward the 0.786 Fibonacci retracement line — near the upper trendline resistance — at around $69,650.

Although the cryptocurrency managed to surpass the 50-day EMA on May 4, it struggled to sustain momentum for a further breakout, encountering resistance near the 0.5 Fibonacci retracement level of around $64,895.

If Bitcoin fails to overcome this resistance decisively, it could start a period of consolidation or even a reversal. In that case, the next downside target appears to be around its multi-month ascending trendline support (the purple line) at around $60,500 in May.

Meanwhile, a further break below the ascending trendline support risks sending BTC’s price toward the 0.0 Fibonacci retracement level near $56,580 in May.

Interestingly, analyst CrediBULL Crypto anticipates the price to fall toward a similar level if it reverses from the $62,000-64,450 resistance area.

Bitcoin NUPL hints cautious upside sentiment

As of May 4, the Bitcoin Net Unrealized Profit/Loss (NUPL) metric has reached 0.54. This indicates that a significant portion of BTC holders are experiencing substantial unrealized gains.
