Bitcoin remains on track to hit the $57,000 mark as long as it does not slip well below a crucial support level identified by market analyst Ali Martinez.

Bitcoin’s recent rally has stalled in the past week after a failed attempt to break above $53,000. Since then, the leading cryptocurrency has dropped as low as $50,400, within frequent runups to the $52,000 range.

However, popular crypto analyst Ali Martinez outlined another support level for investors to keep an eye on. Precisely, he notes that Bitcoin has a good chance of continuing its uptrend if it holds the support around $51,500.

An accompanying chart shows that the $51,500 mark is an important realized price distribution range for Bitcoin.

In other words, a significant amount of tokens (around 488,175 BTC) last moved within that price range. This amount is worth around $25 billion in BTC at current prices, with these buyers unlikely to sell unless prices drop significantly.

According to the statistics, the $51,500 range is the third-most important support level for BTC. The two other crucial support levels, given Bitcoin’s current prices, are $47,300 and $42,500.

At the same time, another crucial price level exists at around $57,000, which the analyst sets as Bitcoin’s next major price target.

It is noteworthy that while Ali Martinez backs Bitcoin to hold the $50,000 price range, others favor a mild pullback before the uptrend continues. A short-term correction could see BTC drop to $48,600 before a price reversal.

Bitcoin Eyes $100K Long-term

Despite Bitcoin’s short-term bearish trend, many popular predictions tip the cryptocurrency to eventually cross $100,000. The popular author of the best-selling book Rich Dad Poor Dad was the latest to make this forecast in recent times.

Meanwhile, investors must contend with the ongoing price consolidation and maintain optimism of a continued rally. The upcoming Bitcoin halving and inflows into the newly launched Bitcoin ETFs could all provide a tailwind for BTC in the coming months.
