The Bitcoin (BTC) price has started to rise again after another rejection at the $38,000 mark.
Today's rejection by buyers is their second attempt to resume the current uptrend. Analysts predicted that Bitcoin would reach the psychological price level of $40,000.
Coinidol.com reports that the price indication on the chart suggested that Bitcoin would reach a high of 1.272 Fibonacci extension or $38,400. The largest cryptocurrency is likely to make a U-turn if its price reaches the predicted level.
Nonetheless, BTC is on the retreat again after two failed attempts to break above the $38,000 mark. If the selling pressure continues, Bitcoin will almost certainly be forced to trend sideways.
The price of the cryptocurrency is expected to fluctuate between $35,400 and $38,000. Bitcoin could fall much further if the bears break through the $35,400 support level.
Since November 9, Bitcoin has been back in a sideways trend, resulting in horizontal moving average lines on the 4-hour chart. The price bars are above the moving average lines, which means that the price will retest or break through the resistance level. The price bars are currently moving towards the 21-day simple moving average. Should the bears break through the $35,400 support, Bitcoin could fall even further.
Key resistance levels – $30,000 and $35,000
Key support levels – $20,000 and $15,000
Bitcoin is nearing the end of its uptrend. On November 9, the wick of the long candle indicates strong selling pressure at the $38,000 resistance level. At recent highs or higher, demand has dried up twice. Meanwhile, the Bitcoin price has been fluctuating between $35,400 and $38,000.
