Watch these key technical levels as Bitcoin price nears $61,800 all-time high

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) has surpassed $61,000 on April 10 for the first time in nearly a month. Following the breakout, traders are starting to look at new levels of resistance and support in the short-term as optimism returns to the market.
