Bitcoin (BTC/USD) is making minor recovery attempts on the $31K level, having dipped to fresh daily lows sub-$30K threshold.

BTC/USD: Hourly chart

As observed in the hourly chart, the Bitcoin buyers are trying hard to recapture the critical barrier around $31,480, which is the confluence of the horizontal 21 and 100-hourly moving average (HMA).

Acceptance above the latter could put the $32K hurdle at risk once again. A sustained break above that level could expose the 50-HMA at $32,368.

The bulls need to clear the above resistance in order to regain the $33K mark. The recent bullish momentum is likely to resume only on a breakthrough the latter, opening doors for a retest of the record highs.

The hourly Relative Strength Index (RSI) is inching higher, looking to enter into the bullish territory above 50.00.

Alternatively, the $30K cushion could once again come to the bulls’ rescue, failure to resist it could threaten the upward-sloping 200-HMA support at $29,649.
