Bitcoin has been trading in the overbought region

Bitcoin has continued to fall after a second rejection from the recent high. The coin is still fluctuating above the $33,000 support.

There is a tendency for the price to retest the previous support at $31,000. A break below the current support will mean a further downward movement of the coin. If the price rebounds above the support, there is the likelihood of upside momentum. 

Bitcoin’s decline is not unconnected with the recent rallies. Bitcoin has been trading in the overbought region after breaking the psychological price level of $20,000. The bullish momentum continued as Bitcoin traded above $40,000 high. Nevertheless, there is always a risk of a sharp decline in vertical rallies. Bitcoin is trading at $33,284 at the time of writing.
