Bitcoin (BTC/USD) maintained positive upside momentum early in the Asian session as the pair sought to reclaim the psychologically-important 21000 figure after recently peaking around the 21080 area, its strongest print since mid-September. This move was a test for the 61.8% retracement in the depreciating range between 22800 and 18131 and opens up potential tests of other related retracement areas at the 21698 or 21800 levels. Traders continue to monitor the price activity around the area of 20836.92, which represents the 38.2% retracement in the wider depreciating range (25214.57 to 1831). Additional retracement levels within this depreciating range are the 21672 and 22508 areas, 23542 and 23698. Recent upward progress has seen buying pressure and areas for technical support rise around the 20509 and 20055 areas. Stops are likely below.
