The bulls have pushed Bitcoin to the high of $46,438

After a four-day price battle, Bitcoin has begun the resumption of a downtrend. Today, the price of BTC has fallen to a low of $45,005 and further downside is possible.

The bulls have pushed Bitcoin to the high of $46,438 but could not sustain the bullish momentum above the high of $47,000. The downtrend becomes necessary as the cryptocurrency has reached an overbought condition since August 7. Initially, the BTC price will fall to the low of $42,000. 

This support was the breakout level of bitcoin. The uptrend will continue if the support holds. Buyers will have the opportunity to retest the $47,000 resistance zone. However, if the $42,000 support fails to hold, Bitcoin will continue to fall to $38,000 or $36,000. In the meantime, the BTC price is still hovering above the $45,000 support.
