Regaining last week’s losses triggered by the new Omicron Coronavirus variant and fears around regulations in India, Bitcoin price crossed above the $58,000 psychological level on Sunday nigh and is still up 5.77% over the last 24 hours.
The BTC price forecast remains uncertain for many for the remaining part of the years as fears around Corona remains. Bears still have the choice of taking advantage of the leveraged bulls against the backdrop of the recent rally.
Against this background and the month set to end in two days, it is important to understand how technical will shape BTC’s performance this week.
