Bitcoin Price Corrects: Last Chance to Buy Before $55k?

After two weeks of bullish price action, Bitcoin price faces a big correction once again. BTC price briefly surpassed $48,000 in Tuesday’s trading session. However, the Bitcoin (BTC) price kept trading within $46.8k-$48k in the next few days and finally broke below $45,000 on Friday. The ongoing correction suggests that the bulls might be losing some momentum. Many investors are also considering the current dip as a buying opportunity to target a Bitcoin price above $55,000.
