Bitcoin Struggles over $31,000 Support as Sellers Threaten to Short

Bitcoin’s (BTC) upside is encountering resistance at the $34,300 resistance zone. Over the past two days, the cryptocurrency has been consolidating below the resistance zone due to a potential breakout.

However, Bitcoin was met with resistance as it fell to a low of $32,600. Nonetheless, Bitcoin is set to fall on rejection at the high of $33,900 and revisit support at $31,000. In the previous price action, the price of BTC fell to a low of $29,247 as bulls bought the dips.

In the first price auction, the uptrend was short-lived as it was pushed off at $34,000. If buyers break through the resistance at $34,300, the BTC price will resume its upward momentum to the previous highs. It is possible that the BTC price will rise to retest the $40,000 resistance. On the downside, Bitcoin risks falling to the $28,000 or $20,000 lows if the bears break the $31,000 support. In the meantime, BTC/USD is trading at $33,102 at the time of writing.
