On the daily chart, the BTC price has been trading in a downward channel since November 10. The world’s largest cryptocurrency remained pressured near $45k in the recent price action. Now, a break above or below the trading range of $39K and $45 will set the path for the fresh round of the trending market.

Moving on to the technical indicators, the daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) bounded oscillator trades at 35 with no sign of immediate reversal. The MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) reads below the midline since the beginning of the downfall, which is indicating the downward pressure remains intact in the pair.

Looking at the different picture, the formation of two consecutive ‘Doji’ candlesticks coupled by the breaking of the descending trend line could result in a test of $44k in the short term. Furthermore, an acceptance above 50-DMA at $47K is required to touch the December 26 high of $52K.
