The Bitcoin (BTC) price is moving sideways and continues to encounter resistance at the high of $44,000. On January 2, BTC reaches $45,650.

Long-term forecast for the Bitcoin price: fluctuating

The largest cryptocurrency has fallen below the 21-day SMA twice and is currently above the 50-day SMA. Bitcoin will rise if the price breaks above the 21-day simple moving average and returns to the previous high of $44,700. 

On the other hand, Bitcoin is at risk of falling if it fails to break above the 21-day SMA. If buyers fail to sustain the price above the 21-day SMA, the crypto asset will fall above the 50-day SMA or the $40,400 floor. 

Meanwhile, the Bitcoin price is trading in the middle of the moving average lines. At the time of writing, it is worth $45,650.
