The price of Bitcoin (BTC) is falling again after meeting rejection at the high of $58,400. Buyers are desperately trying to end the current downward correction.
The recent downturn has eased as Bitcoin has found support above $55,700. Since November 22, BTC/USD has been trading in a tight range between $56,000 and $58,400. On November 23 and today, buyers attempted to push the BTC price above the $58,400 high but were rejected.
Bitcoin would have risen to the $60,000 price level if buyers had been successful above current resistance. If the market declines, it could return to the lower price area above $56,000. As usual, the bulls will buy the dips if the price falls below the lower price range. However, if the bears break through support at $55,700 and the bearish momentum continues, bitcoin will fall to a low of $51,050. In the meantime, the BTC price will fluctuate between the $56,000 and $58,400 levels.
