Bitcoin Price Remains Within A Narrow Range, What’s Next For The Bears?

Since last week, the Bitcoin price has been in a narrow range. Over the last few days, Bitcoin had tried to trade north. It has yet to trade at $20,000

Bitcoin’s price movement has mostly remained between $18,000 to $20,000 each.

BTC lost 0.4% over the past 24 hours. This confirms that there have been no significant price movements.

BTC has fallen 1.1% in the last week. Market strength overall has been weak, and market movers remain dull on respective price charts.

Bitcoin’s technical outlook continued to favor the bears. A slowdown in Bitcoin demand has resulted in a decrease of buying power.

Its one-day chart shows that Bitcoin should retrace its steps and trade near the $18,900 mark in the next trading sessions.

The support level is a critical price level that will affect the future movement of Bitcoin, depending on how much it’s being demanded.

BTC traded at $19,000. Bitcoin has traded in a range between $19,000.400 and $19,000.

The bears will be strengthened if they continue to move in the same pattern. BTC was trading at $19600 above the overhead resistance. BTC is likely to struggle past that level.

Only the $20,000 mark will be enough to make bulls takeover. However, $18,900 would provide the closest support. This is an important support line for Bitcoin.

BTC will move up to $18,300 if it falls from that level, and then up to $17,000. It is possible that Bitcoin’s volume traded during the previous session was green. This may indicate an increase in buyers.
