There is a price scramble above $45,000

The price of bitcoin (BTC) has fallen to a low of $45,117 after being pushed back from a high of $48,800. The cryptocurrency has fallen into the bearish trend zone after dropping below the moving averages.

There is a price scramble above $45,000, with buyers defending the current support and driving the BTC price higher. If buyers successfully hold it, Bitcoin will resume its upward momentum and retake the resistance at $48,800. A rally above $50,000 is possible if resistance at $48,800 is broken. However, Bitcoin is trading in the downtrend zone, which makes it vulnerable to further downside. A break below $45,000 support would give sellers the edge to push Bitcoin to the low of $43,444. At the time of writing, the cryptocurrency is trading at $45,597.
