Bitcoin is moving in a narrow range

The latest price analysis by report, the Bitcoin (BTC) price is holding above the $26,000 support level after the drop on August 17.

Bitcoin price long-term forecast: bearish

Bearish momentum has eased over the past five days as the BTC price has remained above the current $26,000 support level. At the time of writing, one Bitcoin costs $26,114. If the current $26,000 support holds, Bitcoin will reach a high of $29,000.

Selling pressure will resume if the bears break the current support level. Bitcoin will continue to fall and retest its previous low at $24,000. In the meantime, the BTC price is consolidating above the $26,000 support level through doji candlesticks. Doji candlesticks indicate the uncertainty of buyers and sellers regarding the market direction. Thus, the Bitcoin price has been holding above $26,000 for the past week due to the dominance of doji candlesticks.
