Bitcoin Rally Stalls at $15,600, May Resume Uptrending
Bitcoin (BTC) price is now in a sideways trend as buyers fail to break the $16,000 resistance. Today, the king coin is trading at $15,366 at the time of writing. In the previous uptrend, the upside momentum was terminated at the $15,888 high.
Buyers made attempts to push the price to the resistance zone but were repelled on three occasions. Consequently, BTC plunged to $14,400 low. The bulls buy the dips as the king coin is corrected upward.
Presently, BTC is facing rejection at the $15,600 high. For the upside momentum to continue, buyers should sustain the bullish momentum above the $14,000 high. On the upside, if the coin rises and bounces above the $15,500 support, the price momentum will break the $15,600 and $15,800 resistance level. Conversely, if the bulls fail to break the resistance levels, BTC will continue the range-bound movement. Perhaps, the crypto may fall again.
