Bitcoin (BTC) price has retested the $35,000 resistance zone for a possible upside move.
Bitcoin (BTC) Price Long-Term Prediction: Bearish
Since June 20, bears have equally resisted the upside move. Every time Bitcoin drops low to either $29,000 or $28,000, the bulls buy the dips. This has caused BTC/USD to fluctuate between $29,000 and $35,000 price levels. From the price indicator, Bitcoin has a chance of a possible upside move.
Now if buyers push BTC price above $35,000 resistance, the market will rise to $38,000. It is likely that the bullish momentum will be sustained to retest the resistance zone between $40,000 and $42,000. However, if the BTC price fails to break the initial resistance at $35,000, bitcoin will be trapped in a narrow range. That is, the cryptocurrency will fluctuate in a narrow range on the downside of the chart. Meanwhile, the bulls are on the verge of breaking through the resistance at $35,000.
Major Resistance Levels – $65,000 and $70,000
Major Support Levels – $40,000 and $35,000
