    $BTC surprises again
    $BTC slows at resistance
    Rejection is likely

Bitcoin (BTC) is still raging upwards along with the vast majority of altcoins. However, heavy resistance is starting to bear down on the price as $BTC nears $47,000. Extreme caution is advised.

When the whole of the crypto market is so bullish it is very easy to get carried away and enter long positions at a very high price. The Fear and Greed Index is now registering in the Greed at 72, practically the same as it was one month ago when the Spot Bitcoin ETFs were announced, and bitcoin was at its high.

As always, when zooming right out on the weekly time frame and looking left, the picture usually appears a lot clearer. The main support is at $42,000, and if $BTC can get through the resistance at $47,000, the 0.618 level awaits just overhead. 

This is the level that $BTC tagged last time it came to $49,000. If the price gets there again this could be a double top, and a confirmation of the resistance. It would be highly likely that there could be a rejection from this level. Traders beware.
