Bitcoin price is falling

Bitcoin (BTC) price is falling while remaining above the 50-day line SMA and below the 21-day line SMA.

Bitcoin price long-term forecast: bullish

However, if the current support is broken, further selling pressure will start. In other words, Bitcoin will fall below the psychological price level of $20,000 if the current support of $21,500 is broken. The market will move back up if the Bitcoin price rises above the 21-day line SMA or the resistance level at $23,000, which will push Bitcoin to test the next barrier at $24,000. On the other hand, if the $21,500 support is broken, the cryptocurrency value will fall above the $20,000 level or the 50-day support SMA. The cryptocurrency price is currently retesting the $21,500 support.
