Cryptocurrency trader Nicholas Merten said the leading crypto asset by market valuation will have difficulty overcoming channel resistance between $30,000 and $33,000. “The question here is whether we can overcome this resistance channel, which has always proven to be resistant on Bitcoin is why I’m trying to bring people back to the center – I’m not trying to be a longshot or bet on Bitcoin. “This is why we believe we are very win. This again prepared us to enter channel resistance for another downward third wave that will likely hit harder than any previous resistance that we encountered as we moved to this range because sometimes, we reach this gap and we can’t get past it, which will be a problem.’ He added.
