Bitcoin price repeatedly tested the $30,000-$31,000 range as support before rebounding higher

Usually, the weekend is the time when the BTC price declines the most, but in recent weeks, this is almost the time when the largest cryptocurrency in this market accumulates and increases slightly.

BTC has repeatedly tested the $30,000 – $31,000 range as support before bouncing back higher. Its maximum retracement was able to penetrate the $35,000 resistance. However, the low price accumulation pushed the pair back above $32,000.

As a result, the bearish sentiment towards Bitcoin from analysts is extremely high, around or below $30,000, as AZCoin News reported.

Bitcoin might be prepping for a price breakout – higher or lower – after trading in a range between roughly $30,000 and $40,000 for the past eight weeks. The big concern is a drop below the psychological level of $30,000 might trigger additional selling as options traders look to square positions.

The formation of a potential inverse cup and handle formation also sees Bitcoin crashing below $20,000 on the next breakdown below the $30,000 – $31,000 range.

Despite the 51% drop in the BTC price, many fear that another multi-year bear market could begin. But in reality, Bitcoin had six consecutive months of gains before the downturn and the asset will have to recover from a historical perspective.

Even if BTC is down 51% from its all-time high, on a year-to-date basis, its price is still 250% above its $9,100 valuation on July 16, 2020. Bitcoin’s term is still intact with its price currently testing the 12-month moving average, a key support level that will determine where the price will go from here.
