Bitcoin Price Prediction: BTC/USD Struggles below $37,000 Resistance, Targets the $45,000 High
Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction – January 7, 2021
BTC/USD has risen to $37,470 high after three days of correction. On January 3, the BTC price reached $34,873 but was repelled. This led to the correction and the subsequent breaking of the $35,000 resistance level. The bulls have to jump the next hurdle at the $37,000 price level for the resumption of the upside momentum.
Resistance Levels: $38,000, $39,000, $40,000
Support Levels: $25,000, $24,000, $23,000
Bitcoin bulls resumed the upside momentum by pushing BTC above the $35,000 resistance level. On January 6, the bulls retested the resistance, but BTC dropped again to $34,000 low and rebounded. The bullish momentum broke the resistance as BTC rallied above $37,000. The breaking of the $37,000 resistance is incomplete as Bitcoin faces another rejection at the recent high. The RSI and the daily stochastic have remained in the overbought region signaling a possible correction. The previous correction on January 3, resulted in BTC plunging to $28,540 low. However, if the correction takes place and the price breaks below $28,540 support, the downtrend will resume. Meanwhile, Bitcoin is retracing after rejection from the recent high. BTC has fallen to $37,095 at the time of writing.
