Bitcoin, being the pioneer and most dominant cryptocurrency, has been leading the market with its price movements. Over the past week, BTC has been trading in a sideways motion, struggling to break through the $45,000 resistance level. However, it has managed to maintain strong support at $42,000, indicating a stable market for the leading coin. ETH,  the second largest cryptocurrency, has also been trading above $2,100, with slight bearish movements but with potential for a breakout to the upside.

Other major cryptocurrencies like Binance Coin (BNB), Solana (SOL), XRP, Avalanche (AVAX), and Dogecoin (DOGE) have also been trading in a similar range, with minor fluctuations in price. However, all of these coins have shown strong support levels, indicating market confidence and stability.

BTC/USD

On December 18, Bitcoin fell below the 20-day exponential moving average of $41,760, but the bears were unable to sustain the lower levels, indicating robust buying on dips. On December 19, the bulls pushed the price over the downtrend line while the bears sold at higher levels. However, fresh purchasing on December 20 lifted the price above the immediate resistance level of $43,500. This raises the prospect of a rally above the 52-week high of $44,700. If this occurs, the BTC/USDT pair may rise to $45K and, finally, $50K. Currently, BTC is at $43,466, with a slight decrease of 0.09% over the past 24 hours.
