Buyers are expected to emerge to push prices higher

Bitcoin (BTC) price has declined in the last three days after the rejection at the moving average lines.

Bitcoin price long-term forecast: bearish

Buyers pushed the cryptocurrency to a high of $16,963 on Dec. 26, but were beaten back. Since then, the bitcoin price has fallen to a low of $16,444, but the bulls have bought the dips. At the time of writing, the cryptocurrency had risen above $16,586. However, selling pressure could pick up again if bearish momentum stays below the $16,500 support. Bitcoin will fall to a low of $16,000. If $16,000 support is broken, the decline will continue to the low of $15,588. However, if the $16,500 support holds, the largest cryptocurrency will resume its uptrend. Initially, it will rise and retest the $17,000 mark. If the $17,000 mark is broken, Bitcoin will reach its previous high of $18,000.
