Bitcoin (BTC) price is in a downward correction as the bears try to break the support at $39,200.

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Long-Term Forecast: Bearish

Today, the BTC price fell to the low of $38,547, but then recovered. Since April 11, the bitcoin price has been holding above the $39,200 support, but fluctuating between $39,200 and $41,500. If the bears break below the current support today, the market will fall to the low of $37,000. The largest cryptocurrency has been holding above the $37,000 support since Feb. 21, with Bitcoin rising to a high of $48,000 in the last price action on March 13. 

Buyers failed to sustain the bullish momentum as the market reached the overbought zone. Today, the BTC price has continued to fall. Nevertheless, buyers will vigorously defend the support level at $37,000. Perhaps Bitcoin will recover and resume the trend. It is unlikely that Bitcoin will revisit the previous low at $33,855. This would amount to panic buying and selling at the bottom of the chart.
