Following its downward correction between $17,800 and $18,600, BTC rebounded twice to break away from the previous price range.
However, the breakout above $18,800 has not been convincing as price rallied to $19,400 high but retraced immediately. For the upside momentum to resume, buyers have to sustain the bullish momentum above $18,800. Presently, BTC is trading above $19,000 to retest the previous high.
Certainly, BTC will rally above $20,200, if buyers can push BTC price above $19,400 resistance. Nevertheless, the upside momentum has been ongoing after one to three days of correction. The breaking of the recent high determines the continuity of the trend. Conversely, if the bulls fail to sustain the bullish momentum above $18,800, the crypto is likely to fall back to the previous price range of $17,800 and $18,600.
