Bitcoin's upward move is likely

Today, May 10, BTC price is retracing after facing rejection from the high of $59,600. For the past three days, buyers have continued to retest the $60,000 overhead resistance to break it.

Bitcoin Price Long-Term Prediction: Bullish

On May 8, the bulls retested the resistance zone, and the BTC price declined to $56,400 support level. Promptly, the bulls bought the dips and the market rose again. The selling pressure has been overwhelming above the $60,000 overhead resistance. 

On the upside, if the bulls succeed in breaking above the resistance level, Bitcoin price will rally above $65,000 high. In the meantime, the bears are attempting to break below the crucial support level of $58,000. If the bears succeed in breaking below the $58,000 support, BTC/USD will resume another round of downward correction. 

There is a tendency of price reaching the low of $56,000. Nonetheless, the downtrend will continue if the price breaks below the $56,000 support. In the long run, Bitcoin may revisit the lows of $53,000 and $50,000. Meanwhile, the BTC price is hovering above the $58,000 support at the time of writing.
