Bitcoin (BTC) price has continued its rally to a high of $24,736 on July 30. Buyers failed to sustain bullish momentum above the $24,000 resistance zone for the second time.
The largest cryptocurrency could reach the high of $28,000 if the bullish momentum is maintained. The BTC price is expected to reach the high of $30,000. The recent rejection is the result of a lack of buyers at higher price levels.

Today, Bitcoin has retreated above the $23,000 support, forming small indecisive doji candlesticks. On the downside, the doji candlesticks suggest that Bitcoin is likely to continue a sideways move below the $24,000 resistance zone for a few more days.
