Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD making skittish moves within a familiar range during Wednesday.

The pair reached highs of $57,875 on Bitstamp over the past 24 hours, these failing to hold for long as buyer support still waned closer to $60,000 resistance.

Amid an overall uninspiring market environment, some took the opportunity to highlight ongoing similarities between 2021 and previous bull market years.

Popular Twitter account TechDev focused on Fibonacci levels and Bitcoin’s behavior around them — this year, so far, has conformed exactly to the standard rubric.

All 3 full #BTC cycles saw a "mid-cycle" bounce off the 1.272.

After that…

2013 faced resistance at the 1.55.

2017 faced resistance at the 1.618.

2021 faced it at both.

That analysis feeds into a prediction of the current cycle topping out at up to $300,000.

In previous comments, TechDev agreed that it was «almost time» for Bitcoin’s relative strength index (RSI) to see a comeback of its own, with price following.

Fellow trader Pentoshi meanwhile confirmed a belief that $60,700 should be reclaimed and held in order to plan long positions.

«So far sellers have seemed weak at the lows down here,» he told Twitter followers.
