Bulls defended the support as Bitcoin rallied to the high of $36,400

Bitcoin (BTC) survives bearish onslaught above the $34,000 support. Today, sellers pushed BTC's price to the $34,500 low and it rebounded above the current support. This will be the third time the bears will be attempting to break the $34,000 support.

In the two previous attempts on May 29 and 30, the bulls defended the support as Bitcoin rallied to the high of $36,400. Bitcoin would have fallen to the lows of $30,000 and $28,000 if the bears successfully breach the $34,000 support. 

One other thing that could have happened is the creation of tension and panic selling as the BTC price approaches the low of $20,000. On the upside, buyers have an uphill task to jump over the hurdle at $40,000. A breakout above $40,000 will propel BTC's price to rally above $46,000. Meanwhile, Bitcoin is trading at $36,738 at the time of writing.
