Sellers are likely to push the BTC price to the low of $36,000

The Bitcoin (BTC) price appears to be under renewed selling pressure as the upside correction faces rejection at the $40,000 level. On July 4, the BTC price broke down to $37,500 and resumed its upward correction.

The upward correction ended as the cryptocurrency regained support at $38,000. The bears have already broken through the $38,000 support while the bulls were buying the dips. However, the upside correction was short-lived as the market resumed its downtrend.

On the downside, sellers are likely to push the BTC price to the low of $36,000 as they were attracted by the high of $40,000. The market will fall to $36,800 if the bears break the $38,000 support. On the other hand, the BTC price will rise again if the $38,000 support holds. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $38,000.
