On September 13, the bitcoin price (BTC) came under selling pressure at the $22,794 resistance level. In the last 48 hours, the downtrend has been halted as Bitcoin consolidates above the $20,000 support.
Bitcoin price long-term forecast: bullish
Once BTC price rises above the 21-day line SMA, it will resume its uptrend. The bottom line is that buyers will emerge at the lower price levels to push Bitcoin higher. Buyers will revisit the resistance at $22,794 to break through it.
The market will rally above the $24,000 and $25,205 resistance levels if the buyers are successful. However, if sellers break the psychological price level of $20,000, Bitcoin could fall to a low of $18,675. However, buyers are expected to dynamically defend the current support level. The largest cryptocurrency will trade between $18,675 and $24,000 if Bitcoin loses its current support.
