Bitcoin price

After a daily close above the USD 50,000 level, bitcoin price surpassed the USD 51,000 and USD 52,000 levels. BTC traded to a record high near USD 52,750 before it started a minor downside correction. It is trading near USD 52,000, with an immediate support at USD 51,500. The next key support sits at USD 51,000.
On the upside, the USD 52,750 and USD 53,000 levels are short-term hurdles. A break above USD 53,000 might set the pace for a move towards the USD 55,000 level.
