BTC price is falling and has broken below the $32,000 support level. Initially, on January 21, Bitcoin reached a low of $30,196 but could not continue the downward movement as price corrected upward.
The bottom line is that since January 4, the bulls have been defending the $30,000 support. The candlesticks have been indicating long tails of various lengths. The long tails indicate that there is strong buying pressure at lower price levels.
Nevertheless, as buyers were able to defend the current support, they were unable to push the BTC price above the resistance line. On five occasions, buyers pushed the BTC price to the previous highs but were resisted as shown by the resistance line. At each attempt at the resistance line, the BTC price falls to the previous support. Now the sellers have succeeded to sink BTC to the $30,000 support. On the downside, if sellers were able to break the $30,000 support, the crypto will drop to $25,800 low.
