The battle between Bitcoin price bulls and bears continues as they struggle to break free from the range of $25,000 to $26,000. After a failed attempt to climb back to $30,000 in August, the bearish pressure has wiped out previous gains that fell just short of $28,000. This decline brought Bitcoin back to its price point before Grayscale won the lawsuit against the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Currently, Bitcoin’s price is on the verge of a much-anticipated bull run, holding above the support level at $25,000 but facing resistance below $26,000. However, an immediate recovery from this short-term support seems unlikely due to the lack of momentum to sustain an upward trend.
As a result, bulls may need to accept the possibility of relinquishing support at $25,000 to allow Bitcoin’s price to gather liquidity from lower levels, potentially around $24,000 or even $22,000. Some analysts even speculate that Bitcoin could drop further to $15,500 before the bull market truly begins.
At present, the market is characterized by sideways trading, with the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator neither displaying a bullish nor bearish outlook. A bullish signal occurs when the blue MACD line crosses above the red signal line, indicating a strengthening uptrend. Conversely, a bearish signal occurs when the momentum indicator drops towards the mean line and into the negative region, with the blue MACD line flipping below the red signal line.
Traders and investors should closely monitor Bitcoin’s reaction to the $25,000 support level. A breach of this support could trigger a sell-off towards $24,000 and $22,000. Conversely, a breakout above the $26,000 resistance level would be seen as a positive sign, potentially leading to gains above $30,000. Investors eagerly await a bullish signal to rally behind Bitcoin and capitalize on potential profits.
