- BTC/USD bulls need defend $5,100.
- The resistance area $5,200-$5,250 is a hard nut to crack.
Bitcoin (BTC) is locked in a tight range limited by $5,100 on the downside and $5,200 on the upside. The first digital coin has been sidelined since the weekend, following a strong downside movement on Thursday, April, 25.

Bitcoin bulls may have a hard time pushing the price above the said barrier as there are a lot of strong technical levels clustered above the current price. We will need a strong catalyst to break above $5,200-$5,250 area; however, once it happens, the upside momentum is likely to gain traction.
