Bears are causing the BTC price to fall

The bitcoin (BTC) price edged higher after surging to a high of $34,600 and then retreating. Buyers were unable to sustain the bullish run above the $34,400 high. Today, the bullish momentum has dried up at the $34,400 resistance as the market resumes selling pressure.

BTC/USD dropped to the low above $32,200 earlier as bulls bought the dips. The bears failed to extend the downtrend to $31,000. Lately, the bulls have been buying the dips while the bears have been selling the rallies.

This indicates the resumption of the range-bound moves. However, once the BTC price breaks through the $34,400 or $35,000 resistance level, a rally to $41,272 and then to $42,500 is expected. Unfortunately, the bears have provided strong resistance at these levels. This is causing the BTC price to fall. It is the expectation to push Bitcoin to the $31,000 support. Meanwhile, Bitcoin is trading at $34,239 at the time of writing.
