After testing the lows made on January 24, BTC jumped almost 50% and peaked at$45,855.0. However, soon it retraced toward $43,000 resulting in a red candlestick.

This is followed by the formation of a ‘Doji’ candlestick, which ignores any direction signals and remains indecisive just above the 50-day SMA.

Now, if the price sustains today’s session lows then it would set the stage for the continuation of the current trend. The resurgence of renewed buying pressure would result in another leg up in prices, with the immediate target of $48,000.

On the other hand, a decisive break below the mentioned moving average would invalidate the bullish thesis and could retest the $40,000 level.
