The market has retreated to $36,700 as the bulls are buying  the dips

Bitcoin (BTC) continues its downward correction as buyers try to keep the price above the $38,000 level. Yesterday, the BTC price rose to a high of $38,270, but the cryptocurrency pulled back.

Today, the market has retreated to $36,700 as the bulls are buying  the dips. Since January 26, the bears have been providing tough resistance between the resistance zones at $38,000 and $39,000. If the bulls overcome the resistance zones, Bitcoin will complete an accelerated upward movement to the high at $44,000. 

Nonetheless, the cryptocurrency will continue to rise if buyers maintain the bullish momentum to the upside. Today, the price of BTC declined after yesterday's rejection of the recent high. However, if the bears drop below the support at $37,000, the selling pressure will increase again. The bears will try to push the price of BTC to the current support at $33,600. A break below the current support will cause Bitcoin to fall to the psychological price level of $30,000.
