Bitcoin (BTC) price continues its upward movement but fails to jump above the $33,100 hurdle. This is the second time buyers have failed to keep the BTC price above $33,100.
On July 13, during the first rejection, bitcoin broke down to support at $31,700. Yesterday, the bulls bought the dips as the price moved back up. The upside move ended as Bitcoin resumed a new downtrend.
The bears are trying to narrow the tight range between $31,000 and $34,400. The bottom line is that Bitcoin is at risk of further downside if it fails to break above resistance at $33,100. Today, BTC/USD is in a downtrend as the price approaches the $32,000 support. It is likely that the cryptocurrency will fall even lower if there is a clear break below the $32,000 support zone. Bitcoin will fall and revisit the lows at $28,000 and $20,000 if bearish momentum is maintained below the $31,000 support.
