Bitcoin Price Prediction: BTC closes the gap to $60,000 as correction lingers

Bitcoin breaks out of a falling wedge but runs out of steam before tackling $60,000.
A death cross pattern on the 4-hour chart hints at increasing selling pressure in the near-term.
Bitcoin embraced support at $54,500 during the recent dive under $60,000. Improving short-term technical levels have led to a formidable recovery, with Bitcoin moving closer to $60,000. At the time of writing, BTC is doddering slightly under $59,000 amid the struggle to extend the bullish leg above $60,000.
The upswing toward $60,000 came as a result of the formation of a rising wedge. This pattern is bullish and forms amid an uptrend. As the asset ascends to higher levels, it hits a barrier, culminating in declines due to the exhausted bullish front. However, the correction does not stretch all the way down but allows bulls to secure higher support.
A minor consolidation takes place, but a bullish comeback leads to a breakout above the pattern. Meanwhile, the trajectory to $60,000 and the all-time high seems to have stalled. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) on the 4-hour chart reveals that Bitcoin hit overbought conditions.
