Bitcoin Price Prediction: Bitcoin Price May Face the Uptrend
The Bitcoin price remains intact above the 9-day moving average yet to cross above the 21-day moving average. However, a further retracement seems imminent, and it is likely to break above the previous resistance at $44,000. On the contrary, the $40,000, $38,000, and $36,000 serve as the major supports just in case BTC falls further. The technical indicator Relative Strength Index (14) is still moving above 40-level, suggesting a sideways movement within the market.
However, as the daily chart reveals, if the bulls could push the price back above the daily high at $44,000, BTC/USD may see a cross above the upper boundary of the channel which could hit the potential resistance level at $45,000, any further movement could send it to other resistance levels at $48,000, $50,000, and $52,000 respectively.

However, if the price breaks below the 9-day and 21-day moving averages and falls more, the support level of $42,000 and below may be in focus. Meanwhile, as the technical indicator Relative Strength Index (14) moves above 60-level, more bullish signals may play out.
