These are the BTC price levels to watch as Bitcoin risks worst April on record

Bitcoin (BTC) sits at a historically important price point for hodlers, but where could it be headed in the coming days?

As the monthly close looms and various countries prepare for the May holidays, traders are mapping out the options — with some surprises.

$35,000 becomes key focus
