Bitcoin will resume another round of upside momentum

For the past week, Bitcoin bulls have failed to break above the $24,000 overhead resistance. A successful breakout will catapult the coin to rally above $25,000.

Bitcoin will resume another round of upside momentum. However, buyers were able to defend the $22,000 price level as sellers continue to retest the support level. 

On the downside, if the $22,000 support is breached, Bitcoin will decline to $19,500 support. In the meantime, buyers and sellers are in a price tussle in the range-bound zone. It is worthy to note that Bitcoin has been correcting since December 17. Analysts believe that in a strong uptrend, corrections last for about three days. Meanwhile, Bitcoin is trading at $23,177 at the time of writing.
