Bitcoin (BTC) price continues to move within a range, although it has fallen above the 21-day line SMA. Once the bulls buy the dips, the uptrend will resume.
Here is what the price action looks like since November 30, plain and simple. The price has moved very little between the high of $18,000 and the low of $16,000. The price of BTC rose to a high of $17,505 on December 11, but was unable to break above the $18,000 level. The support needed for a possible reversal is currently at $16,881, Bitcoin's low today.
