  • BTC/USD bears battle 50-day SMA following a downside break of two-month-old support line.

Bitcoin fades recent corrective pullback while dropping back to $51,700 during early Friday. In doing so, the cryptocurrency major battles 50-day SMA while keeping Wednesday’s downside break of an ascending trend line from January 27.

However, any further losses will be challenged by an area comprising 100-day SMA and early 2021 tops, near $41,450-300.

On the flip side, a corrective pullback beyond the previous support line, at $53,850 by the press time, will have to piece February top near $58,350 to convince the BTC/USD bulls.
