Recent Bitcoin market trends indicate a phase of consolidation with a key level at $34,990 attracting the attention of day traders. The immediate resistance is around $35,360, which poses a challenge in recent trading. If this level is breached, traders can target resistances at $36,051 and $37,018. On the upside, initial support is around $34,693 and bearish momentum could lead to further support levels at $33,281 and $32,481.
The Relative Strength Index (RSI) at 57 is leaning towards bullish sentiment without moving into overbought territory. The 50-day exponential moving average (EMA) at $34,390 suggests a slight short-term bullish bias. Traders should consider setting stop-loss orders amid continued market volatility.
