Bulls could not sustain the bullish momentum

On July 8, the Bitcoin (BTC) price rose to a high of $22,425, but was pushed back. The price movement was represented by a long candle wick.

The candle wick indicates that there is strong selling pressure at higher levels. Bulls could not sustain the bullish momentum due to lack of buyers at higher price levels. 

In the last three days, the BTC price has been trading between the moving average lines. The cryptocurrency will fall to the $20,000 psychological price level if Bitcoin declines and falls below the 21-day line SMA. If the 21-day line SMA holds as support, the cryptocurrency will continue a new uptrend and regain the previous highs of $21,675 and $23,010. A break above these price levels will catapult Bitcoin to the psychological barrier of $30,000.
