Bitcoin's (BTC) price action is currently constrained by the 21-day SMA support and resistance at $44,700

Bitcoin Price Long Term Forecast: Bullish

Bitcoin (BTC) has maintained its range after hitting a high of $44,729 on December 8. In other words, since December 5, the BTC price has been capped by the overhead resistance of $45,000. On December 22, the largest cryptocurrency was rejected again at $44,444. Bitcoin fell above the 21-day simple moving average, but the bulls bought the dips. After the recent drop, Bitcoin has recovered above the 21-day SMA.

If Bitcoin rises and breaks through resistance at $44,700, the market will rally above the $45,000 high and the positive momentum will extend to the $48,000 high. However, if the bullish scenario proves false, Ether will fall. That is, if the price falls below the 21-day SMA support, it will first fall above the 50-day SMA or the low of $40,198. In the meantime, Bitcoin is worth $43,291 at the time of writing.
