Bitcoin price long-term forecast: bullish

However, the price recovery was short-lived as buyers only managed to keep the price above the 50-day line SMA yesterday. The price of BTC exceeded both the barrier at $18,156 and the 50-day line SMA. When it approached the high of $18,391, the upward momentum was stopped. This indicates that the $18,156 resistance level is guarded by the bears. Bitcoin will retest its previous highs at $20,000 and $21,500 if the positive trend continues as predicted. Bitcoin price has slipped between the moving averages lines today, moving back in a range for the past few days. The largest cryptocurrency is expected to dive down above the $17,000 support or the 21-day line SMA.
