Buyers have been struggling to break through the $24,900 resistance

The Bitcoin (BTC) exchange rate has remained stable above the $24,000 support as it struggles to recapture $25,000. After several attempts to maintain the bullish momentum, Bitcoin is holding above $24,000.

Buyers have been struggling to break through the $24,900 resistance since August 11. Nonetheless, Bitcoin reached the high of $25,205 today, but fell back below resistance. The largest cryptocurrency is struggling to regain the $25,000 support. 

If the bulls break the current resistance and the bullish momentum is maintained above the $25,000 support, the market will resume its upward momentum. The BTC price will rally to the $28,000 high. Bullish momentum will extend to the $30,000 and $32,000 highs. Conversely, if the bitcoin price turns away from its recent high and drops below the 21-day line SMA, it will fall back to its previous low at $20,724.
