Bitcoin on track to see its highest weekly close of 2022

Bitcoin (BTC) saw a fresh spike to near $45,000 overnight into March 27 as the weekend looked set to deliver a decisively bullish close.

Weekly close of key importance

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD grinding back to higher levels seen days previously after a rejection at just above the $45,000 mark.

While still within its extended trading range with $46,000 as its ceiling, the pair was still firmly on the radar of long-term traders as the weekly close drew near, this being apt to be Bitcoin’s highest of the year so far.

Popular trader and analyst Rekt Capital added that Bitcoin’s 21-week exponential moving average (EMA) was also in line for a flip as resistance — something which had served bulls well in 2021.

Some were not convinced of the strength of current levels, however. Among them was fellow trader and analyst Crypto Ed, who cautioned that buying into long-term resistance nearly the $46,000 yearly open made little sense in terms of risk/ reward ratio.

Try to convince me, spot buying into resistance right here is a bad idea.
You won’t succeed with this kind of R:R.

You might get an entry a bit lower but you might miss also a brutal break out and never get your retest.

Max risk is 1R
Reward is 4.9R

As Cointelegraph reported, others had already argued that a more significant trend breakout was necessary for Bitcoin in order for them to flip overall bullish and take on long positions.

Meanwhile, on-chain research revealed that it was spot markets, not derivatives, that were at the helm over the past week.
