The price of Bitcoin (BTC) has fallen below the 21-day SMA for the second consecutive day, indicating that the cryptocurrency is poised for another decline.

Bitcoin price long-term prediction: Bullish

Bulls and bears have been battling over the $72,000 resistance since March 13, 2024. The bulls broke through the resistance and reached a high of $73,588 but were stopped out. After the rejection, the cryptocurrency was forced to move within a price range of $60,000 to $72,000. 

At the time of writing, the value of Bitcoin stands at $65,402. The largest cryptocurrency is currently trading above the 50-day SMA support but below the 21-day SMA resistance. Bitcoin will regain positive momentum after breaking above the 21-day SMA resistance. The cryptocurrency will test its recent high of $73,588.

However, Bitcoin's value will fall if the 50-day SMA support is broken. In the meantime, Bitcoin is approaching the 50-day SMA or the $62,000 support. If the current support is broken, the selling pressure will increase again.
