The price of Bitcoin (BTC) has continued its downward movement as the bulls failed to overcome the high at $39,000.
The bears used the high at $39,000 as a selling point after breaking above the resistance at $45,000. The BTC price would have retested the overarching $45,000 resistance if the bulls have the upper hand.
If the bears resume selling at the $39,000 high, Bitcoin will continue to decline and fall to $36,000 and later to the $32,000 low. However, if the bulls hold above the support at $36,000, the BTC price will likely rise back above the current support. On the other hand, if the bears break below the $36,000 support and the bearish momentum continues, the bitcoin price will fall to either $33,000 or $32,000. In the meantime, the BTC price is trading at $35,379.90 as of press time.
