Bitcoin Struggles to Hold Support at $27K-$30K
BTC is testing an important support zone, although long-term momentum remains weak.
BTC was trading at around $29,000 at press time and is down by 3% over the past 24 hours.
A decisive break below $27,000 could yield further downside targets for BTC, initially toward $17,823. Further, BTC's downward sloping 50-day moving average indicates persistent trend weakness, which could keep sellers active.
Bitcoin faces strong resistance at between $33,000 and $36,000, which could stall an upswing in price. And on the weekly chart, momentum remains negative despite oversold readings. That could increase the risk of a breakdown in price, similar to what occurred in March 2020 and November 2018.
