Bitcoin tried its hand at taking down the resistance level at $27,500 a few times this past week but to no avail. The latest rejection came on Tuesday, and it turned out to be a rather violent one.
It first pushed BTC south to just under $27,000 before the bears took complete control of the market and drove the asset further south to a two-week low at $25,900. The bulls finally decided to act at this point, and they prevented any further declines.
Just the opposite, bitcoin started regaining some traction and jumped above $26,000 almost immediately. The past 24 hours brought another minor leg-up that drove the asset to over $26,900. However, the cryptocurrency has been unable to challenge the $27,000 resistance line as of now and sits a few hundred dollars below it.
