Bitcoin (BTC) price suffered a setback as the bears broke below the critical support level and hit a low of $33,450. Buyers responded and pushed Bitcoin to the previous high.
Bitcoin (BTC) Price Long-Term Prediction: Bearish
The upside move was short-lived as Bitcoin encountered rejection at the high of $35,650. This rejection confirms that the cryptocurrency will continue to fall, either to the previous low of $31,000 or $30,000. If Bitcoin falls, buyers will likely defend these support levels.
Perhaps the bulls will buy the dips to push the BTC price higher. In addition, traders who are in a range can trade the BTC price, which has been fluctuating for a month. On the downside, if the bears break below $30,000 support, Bitcoin will crash to $28,000 or $20,000. This will plunge Bitcoin into a deeper correction. There could be panic buying and selling of Bitcoin. However, a strong rebound above $33,000 support will catapult Bitcoin above $40,000. Meanwhile, Bitcoin has fallen to $32,911 at the time of writing.

What is the next direction for BTC/USD?
BTC/USD is in a range-bound movement. The BTC price has been fluctuating between $32,500 and $40,000 for the past month. Currently, the BTC price is testing the lower price area, which is the support of the horizontal channel. Assuming that the current support holds, a trader moving in the area needs to take a long trade. The stop loss should be placed below the $32,500 support.
The buy order should be terminated near the $40,000 resistance zone. Similarly, if the BTC price encounters rejection at the $40,000 resistance zone – then a short trade is required. Nevertheless, the stop loss should be placed above the $40,000 resistance zone. The sell order should be executed near the support zone.
