Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading above the $29,000 support level and between the moving average lines.
As Bitcoin consolidates above the $29,000 support level, the bears have an advantage over the bulls. Since July 24, the BTC price has stabilized above the $29,000 support level or the 50-day simple moving average line.
If the bears break the current $29,000 support, the market will come under selling pressure again. The most valuable cryptocurrency would fall to a low of $28,000. On the positive side, a rise above the current support level will see Bitcoin rise above the 21-day simple moving average (SMA) or resistance at $30,000. At the time of writing, the BTC price is at $29,449. In the meantime, the BTC price will remain range bound for a few more days.
Bitcoin price remains in its range by consolidating above the 50-day line SMA, but below the 21-day line SMA. For the period of 14 days, the cryptocurrency is declining at the 46 level of the Relative Strength Index. The cryptocurrency has strong momentum above the daily stochastic threshold of 60. The positive momentum is shaky as the cryptocurrency continues to drift sideways.
Key resistance levels – $30,000 and $35,000
Key support levels – $20,000 and $15,000
Since July 24, bitcoin has consolidated in a narrow range between support at $29,000 and resistance at $29,600. Doji candlesticks have dominated price action over the past week.
