The waiting game for cryptocurrency traders continues after Bitcoin (BTC) consolidates below the $ 43,000 resistance again, and a certain speed is expected that can support the $ 50,000 range.

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView show that the price of Bitcoin has fluctuated between $ 41,500 and $ 43,000 in the last two days, and with rising tensions between Ukraine and Russia, many traders are less optimistic about Bitcoin’s short-term outlook.
