Bitcoin Price Long-Term Prediction: Bullish

The reclaiming of the $34,500 support opens the door for upside momentum. The clearing of the $35,000 resistance allows price continuation into previous highs. Also, the breaking of the resistance level will allow BTC price to have an easy passage above the $38,000 high.

At the beginning of February 2021, Bitcoin is facing rejection at the $37,000 high and price is retracing on the downside. The current retracement is likely to reach a low above $35,000 before the resumption of the uptrend. On the upside, the market will move up to the $38, 000 price level. After consolidation above the $38,000 support, BTC will rise to $40,500 where it may face resistance.
