At the time of writing, the price of Bitcoin is moving around $31,823 as the coin is down with 1.16% within 24 hours. The number one cryptocurrency hit a brick wall on the approach to $33,000 and dropped under the pivotal area in a matter of hours.
Where is BTC Price Going Next?
The Bitcoin price remains above the 9-day and 21-day moving averages as the upside break above the channel is a must to start a substantial recovery. Meanwhile, the next hurdles may be seen near the resistance levels of $36,000, $36,200, and $36,400. On the downside, initial support is near the 21-day MA at $27,000 level and if there is a successful break below this level, the bears are likely to gain strength by bringing the price to a low of $25,200, $25,000, and $24,800 support levels.
Looking at the daily chart, BTC/USD is following a dominant bearish bias and a glance at the technical indicator RSI (14) displays a negative picture for BTC in the near-term. In addition, maintaining a gradual downward trend in the negative region, the signal line of RSI (14) decreases as it faces a downward trend for an increase in selling entries.
BTC/USD Medium – Term Trend: Bullish (4H Chart)
According to the 4-hour chart, Bitcoin’s price is currently trading around $32.096 and between the 9-day and 21-day moving averages after falling from $32,890 where the coin touched today. Meanwhile, the 4-hour chart reveals that the bullish supply is coming up slightly as the technical indicator RSI (14) is moving around 55-level to increase the bullish momentum.
However, the more the bulls strengthen and energize the market, the more they push the price to a $33,000 resistance level. Therefore, breaking the mentioned resistance could also allow the bulls to test the $34,000 and above. Meanwhile, the market is following the upward movement as the RSI (14) moves to cross above the 60-level, but any bearish movement below the lower boundary of the channel could reach the support level of $29,200 and below.
