There was no strong pressure from the bears, and they were unable to test the $30,595 level. Over the past night, the pair recovered to the area of ​​the two-hour EMA55, trying to break through the down-trend line. But trading volumes are still below average, and small purchases do not allow the price of BTC to get out of the descending channel.

If the bulls form a bullish momentum, they may overcome the resistance of the trend line and consolidate in the point of control area ($32,794) of the Volume Profile indicator.

Bitcoin is trading at $30,724 at press time.
