Looking at the daily chart for BTC/USDT, the price of BTC has risen above the 20 EMA line – a line that has been acting as resistance for the coin since mid-April. This is also around the time the 20 EMA crossed below the 50 EMA, which is a bearish flag. According to the chart, the bearish play did occur shortly after the 2 EMAs crossed.

The RSI line also recently crossed high above the RSI SMA line as BTC’s price broke above $31k. However, the RSI now looks to close the gap between itself and the RSI SMA line. BTC may fall below $30K if bulls are unable to maintain the current price level between the 20 and 50 EMA, as the two EMA lines still indicate that bears have the upper hand.
